Arizona Tops Ballotpedia’s Top 15 Races to Watch on Election Night

Ballotpedia will be covering roughly 15,000 races on election night – the most in the organization’s 15-year history. Today, the organization published its report on the 15 elections that top their list of the most important, compelling, and competitive in the country.

Ballotpedia’s top 15 races to watch:

  • U.S. Senate – Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin
  • Governor – Arizona, Kansas, Nevada, and Oregon
  • U.S. House – Colorado 8th, New Hampshire 1st
  • State Legislatures – Arizona House of Representatives, Colorado Senate
  • State Supreme Court – Ohio
  • State Executive – Arizona Secretary of State
  • Municipal – Los Angeles Mayor

“These 15 races have implications for who controls the House, Senate, government trifectas, state supreme courts, and more,” said Ballotpedia Managing Editor Cory Eucalitto. “If the balances of power at different levels of government are going to change this fall, we’ll see it in these elections.”

“Our list is unique in that it covers races up and down the ballot, offering deeper context and nuance to the nation’s political landscape.”

Eucalitto said there was a “robust and thoughtful debate” over which 15 races to include on the Top 15 list, in part because Ballotpedia has “extended our coverage area so dramatically in the last year. We had an abundance of great races to watch, and we are excited to see how they all turn out on election night.

Ballotpedia’s election teams will be publishing their reporting and analysis – and election night results – on these top 15 races and thousands more on, in Ballotpedia’s flagship newsletter, “The Daily Brew,” and at its upcoming Election Analysis Hub.
