Elections

Red padlock.png = A signature filing deadline has elapsed or a primary election has been held.

Note: The signature-filing deadline is the date by which candidates must file nominating signatures with election officials in order to have their name placed on the ballot.

June 2010

10 states held their primaries in May, so that at the end of May, 22 states had held their 2010 primaries. 14 states hold their primaries in June, so when June is over, 36 state primaries will have taken place.

As of June 1, signature-filing deadlines have elapsed in 40 states, and 19 signature-filing deadlines remain. (The number of signature-filing deadlines adds up to more than 50 because several states have different deadlines for federal candidates versus state candidates, or for partisan candidates versus independent candidates.)
