Tea Parties and State Legislatures is a research project facilitated by Ballotpedia's staff to investigate the extent to which political engagement in 2010 that can generally be defined as part of the "Tea Party" movement is making itself felt at the level of state legislative elections in 2010.

On the national level, there's a keen interest in identifying and analyzing the extent to which the Tea Party movement and anti-incumbent attitudes might manifest itself at the level of elections for U.S. Congress. At Ballotpedia, we're interested in collecting some statistics and information as a rough gauge to assess whether whether and where Tea Party activists are getting involved electorally at the more local level of state legislative elections.
