We'll be live-blogging tomorrow night's election results here on Ballot Box, a fact that has necessitated actually compiling a list of all of the elections I want to watch. I'm also open to suggestions of interesting elections that I'm missing.
Statewide races: The governor's races in New Jersey and Virginia, obviously, as well as the contests for lieutenant governor and attorney general in Virginia and Pennsylvania's Supreme Court race.
Mayoral elections: New York City, Houston, Detroit, Boston, Seattle, Charlotte, Atlanta, Miami and St. Petersburg, Florida. Other ones that will at least warrant a mention, even though they're not expected be close, include Cleveland, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and St. Paul.
Ballot measures: Gay marriage, school consolidation, medical marijuana and TABOR in Maine, casinos in Ohio, gay domestic partnerships and Tim Eyman's tax limitation initiative in Washington.
State legislative elections: Regularly scheduled elections in Virginia and New Jersey, plus special elections in Alabama, Michigan, Missouri, South Carolina and Washington.
County races: Elections for county executive in Nassau County and Westchester County in New York and for county executive in King County, Washington.
Congress: Since even state and local reporters can't resist a good congressional election, New York-23.
