Quick facts

In all, 207 people ran for the 37 gubernatorial seats in play in 2010.

Only the two major parties, the Republicans and the Democrats, had a candidate on the ballot in all 37 gubernatorial elections.

The third party most successful in getting candidates on the ballots was the Libertarian Party, with nominees in 20 states. Behind thm, the Green Party was on the gubernatorial ballot with 14 nominees.

The American Constitution Party and the Socialist Workers Party each had four nominees.

After that, there were numerous minor parties, most of which are running a single candidate. Aside from the ACP, Green, Libertarian, and Socialist Workers, 21 third parties and minor parties had some presence on the 2010 gubernatorial ballots.

Five states had nominees running with a state-specific party: Alaska, Florida, Iowa, New York, and Vermont. Of these, Vermont actually had two different state-specific party, for a total of six candidates running on platforms highly specific to their state.

A grand total of 37 people were running as unaffiliated candidates; whether they were listed as "un-enrolled", "unaffiliated", "non-partisan", or "independent" candidates differs by state.

2010 also saw a bumper crop of write-in candidates, with 29 people across all states.

Most states had some participation from candidates outside the two major parties: only Alabama, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and South Dakota had ballots without anyone other than the Democratic and Republican candidates. Interestingly, all four of these states were considered very safe elections for the GOP and easily returned Republicans to power.

Tennessee had the most candidates on the ballot at 13; 10 of them are running as Independents. After that, New York came in second with 12 lines on the gubernatorial ballot. However, because New York's fusion voting laws allow candidates to receive multiple endorsements and appear on the ballot next to each party they are campaigning for, there were actually only 10 candidates running. Colorado and Vermont tied with 10 candidates on the ballot.
