Election Day: Twenty-Five Votes of Interest to LGBT People

We’re now four hours until the polls start closing.

I’m “on” now for the next 12 hours (plus some?), providing Metro Weekly‘s readers with updates as there are noteworthy developments and adding in my analysis as it seems appropriate.

Every election is a bit of a gamble and will doubtless have surprises, but here are the 25 elections of interest to the LGBT community on which I am focused. Please let me know if you think I’m missing some (which, again, I doubtless am).

Senate: Alaska, California, Florida, Illinois, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin – Read “The Senate: A Long Way From Sixty,” today’s Senate race Metro Weekly preview

House: Reps. Boccieri (D-Ohio), Bono Mack (R-Calif.), Cao (R-La.), Connolly (D-Va.), Djou (R-Hawaii), Frank (D-Mass.), Murphy (D-Pa.) and Perriello (D-Va.) and open seat held by Rep. Kennedy (D-R.I.) – Read “The House: Whither (Wither?) Pelosi?” today’s House race Metro Weekly preview

Statewide: Governors races in California, Maryland, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New York and Rhode Island and the attorney general race in California

Issues: Iowa’s Supreme Court justice retention and Ohio’s Bowling Green referendum

Finally: Vote.
