Three states are scheduled to hold state executive official elections in 2013: New Jersey, Virginia and Wisconsin. In those elections, a total of 6 state executive seats are up for election. They are:
- Governor of New Jersey
- Lt. Governor of New Jersey
- Governor of Virginia
- Lt. Governor of Virginia
- Attorney General of Virginia
- Wisconsin Superintendent of Public Instruction
Officers in New Jersey and Virginia will be elected on November 5, 2013, following primaries on June 4 and June 11, respectively. In Wisconsin, the general election is scheduled for April 2, 2013. Only two individuals filed for the non partisan position of Wisconsin superintendent this year, therefore no state executive office will appear on the February 19, 2013 primary election ballot.
The 3 chambers with elections in 2013 are in 2 states. They are:
40 of the country's 1,972 state senate seats are up for re-election in November 2013, and 180 of the country's 5,411 state house seats are up for re-election. Altogether, 220 of the country's 7,383 state legislative seats are up for re-election on November 5, 2013.
So far, five states have been identified as having the potential to see measures on the ballot in 2013. Those states are: New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Texas, and Washington. Historically, elections on odd-numbered years see about forty-five measures on average; there were thirty-four in 2011.
