Battleground elections and where to find results  

We’re covering tens of thousands of races up and down the ballot today. Once polls close, we’ll be up late into the night and into the early hours of the morning reporting results and updating analysis articles. To help you get your bearings, we’ve compiled lists of our top battleground elections and top ballot measures:

  • Top 15 elections: This battleground list includes congressional and state executive elections (including for governor), and elections for state supreme court judgeships, state legislatures, and mayors. 
  • Top 15 ballot measures: Voters in 37 states will decide on 132 statewide ballot measures that address topics like abortion, marijuana, voting policies, firearms, sports betting, and state constitutional rights. 

Additionally, you can find our coverage of state-level executive races that tend not to get as much attention. That includes elections for state financial officers like treasurers, auditors, and controllers—officials who are, generally, responsible for things like auditing other government offices, managing payroll, and overseeing pensions. 

Below is a chart showing the partisan composition of state financial officers going into the election. 

You can find our election pages for each office below:

Overall, our list of battleground elections include some of the following (click a state to learn more about the election).  

Here’s where you can follow along our results coverage:

  • Election results overview page: Bookmark this one. We’ll update this page throughout the night as races are called. On this page, you can find election updates, results summaries, and results for battleground races—including U.S. Senate and U.S. House elections, gubernatorial elections, and state supreme court elections. 
  • Election analysis overview page: With thousands of elections taking place across the country, we’ll have in-depth analysis of outcomes at the federal, state, and local levels once results come in. 

Finally, we’d like to invite you to register for our 2022 ballot measure recap webinar on Nov. 10 at 1:00 p.m. ET. Our Editor in Chief, Geoff Pallay, and Managing Editor for Ballot Measures, Ryan Byrne, will analyze ballot measure results compared to previous elections, as well as discuss what happened with measures related to abortion, marijuana, and election policy. Register today!
