2010 Lieutenant Gubernatorial Elections


The winning candidate's margin was calculated by taking the difference between the winner's vote share and that of the next higest vote getter.
Voter turnout was figured specifically for lieutenant gubernatorial races, using the total number of ballots cast for a lieutenant gubernatorial candidate and the total number of registered voters at the cutoff for registration. As such, the figure may differ slightly from voter turnout figures for the entire midterm election.
Time the race was called is given as EST. If there is no date listed after the time, then the race was called on Election Night (November 2, 2010).
