An Election Guide to All Things Not Presidential
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 9:51 pm

In anticipation of the Big Elections tomorrow, here’s a run-down of major races and issues that are worth watching other than the presidential contest. It is worth remembering that there is more going on tomorrow than Bush v. Kerry. There are congressional races, state-level elections, referenda and ballot initiatives galore. It is the Super Bowl for political junkies.

For state-level ballot info and election returns, find a link to a state’s Secretary of State/Election Division here (Here’s the Graphic graphic/map version).

For state-specific news:

  • This graphic from the AP provides links to state-level newspapers.
  • Swing States newspaper links.


  • U.S. Senate: Party Division over Time
  • Here’s my run-down of the close races.
  • RealClear Politics - Polls (Senate Races)
  • Senate Analysis 2004
  • Race for the Senate (CNN)

  • Democrats Have Designs on Senate
  • AK
    • Nation watches Alaska’s Senate race with the balance of power at stake

    • Oil money flows in Alaska Senate race.
  • FL
    • The Miami Herald: Senate rivals bank on voter fear
    • Mel Martinez | ‘I’m bottom-line oriented’ and basic bio on Martinez.
    • Betty Castor | ‘She’s a people person . . . She’s reachable’ and basic bio.
  • NC
    • North Carolina Senate Race, Burr 49% Bowles 45%
    • Burr, Bowles race to wire in N.C. Senate bid.
  • SC
    • South Carolina Senate Race Surprisingly Close.
    • Tenenbaum, DeMint shift senate race into full sprint.

  • OK
    • WaPo: In Okla., Bush’s Popularity Boosts GOP Senate Hopeful.
  • SD
    • WaPo: In Response to Poll, Daschle Backers Amass.
    • ABC News: Daschle in Tough, Costly Election Fight.
    • TCS: Daschle May Lose — And Republicans May Regret It
    • WaPo: La. Could Decide Party Control of Senate in December


  • U.S. House: Party Divisions over Time
  • Race for the House (CNN)

  • GOP expected to keep control of House
  • California: 1 hot contest in 53 House races


  • 11 Governorships up for election
  • CNN’s index of governor stories.
  • Washington Among Tight Governors’ Races.
  • With 11 governors races, domestic issues getting a workout in many states.
  • Attacks rising in races for governor.


  • 11 States to Vote on Same-Sex Marriage:
    Proposed amendments in Mississippi, Montana and Oregon refer only to marriage. Those in Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Michigan, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma and Utah would ban civil unions as well.

  • Basic summary: National snapshot: ballot issues.
  • Ballot initiatives: From weeds to weddings.
  • Initiatives span political spectrum.
  • Voters To Decide Tobacco Tax Initiatives in 3 States”.
  • And, of course, there is the proposed Colorado amendment that would split the EV of the state (and the commensurate lawsuit: Federal lawsuit challenges Colorado’s Electoral College plan).
  • Here are CA bloggers’ endorsements via Stephen Bainbridge for the CA ballot (including initiatives).
  • Alabama has Amendment Two, which strips racist language from the state constitution, but also has erupted into a big political debate over taxes.
  • Alabama: 8 amendments on Tuesday ballot.
