State Legislatures

Here is an overview of the partisan strength in the State Legislatures. The actual names can differ, but for simplicity’s sake I have labeled them all “House” and “Senate”.

Quick explanation: The first column gives the state’s name, then which party holds the governor, then the year of the next election. An “L” means that the governor is term-limited.

The numbers in parenthesis indicate how many seats in each chamber are up that year (if the chamber has staggered elections).

D = Democrats, R = Republicans, I = Independents & third parties, V = Vacant.
