I used to be able to find a history of Senate elections by legislatures on this site. How do I access that here?

You can go to United States in the main menu, find the state, select the Senate Seat and click History and then check out the elections for those years. Or set the date in the upper right to a year that had those elections by legislature and choose the Senate menu item or browse by state.
