The 2022 United States elections will be held on Tuesday, November 8, 2022. During this mid-term election year, all 435 seats in the United States House of Representatives and 34 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate will be contested. Thirty-nine state and territorial gubernatorial and numerous other state and local elections will also be contested. This will be the first election affected by the redistricting that will follow the 2020 United States census.

Federal elections[edit]

Senate elections[edit]

At least 34 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate will be up for election, including all 34 Class 3 seats. Special elections may also be held to fill vacancies in the other two Senate classes. As senators serve six-year terms, the last regularly-scheduled elections for Class III senators were held in 2016.

House of Representatives elections[edit]

All 435 voting seats in the United States House of Representatives will be up for election. As of March 2021, a few dozen representatives have announced their plans to run again in 2022. Eight representatives have announced that they will be retiring. The incumbents in these races were determined in the 2020 House of Representatives elections and subsequent special elections. As these elections will be the first conducted after the post-2020 Census redistricting, several districts may lack an incumbent or have multiple incumbents.

State elections[edit]

Gubernatorial elections[edit]

Elections will be held for the governorships of 36 U.S. states and three U.S. territories. Special elections may be held for vacancies in the other states and territories, if required by respective state and territorial constitutions. As most governors serve four-year terms, the last regularly-scheduled elections for most seats up for election in 2022 were held in 2018. The governors of New Hampshire and Vermont each serve two-year terms, so incumbents in those two states were determined by the 2020 gubernatorial elections.

Legislative elections[edit]

The vast majority of states and territories will hold legislative elections in 2022. Louisiana, Mississippi, New Jersey, and Virginia will not hold state legislative elections, as those states all hold such elections in odd-numbered years. In states that use staggered terms, some state senators will not be up for election. As these elections will be the first conducted after the post-2020 Census redistricting, several legislative districts may lack an incumbent or have multiple incumbents.

Attorney General elections[edit]

Attorneys general will be elected in thirty states, three territories, and one federal district. The previous elections for this group of states took place in 2018. The attorney general of Vermont serves two-year terms and was last elected in 2020.[1]

Local elections[edit]

Mayoral elections[edit]

Mayoral elections will be held in some major U.S. cities.

Eligible[edit]

Ineligible or retiring[edit]

County elections[edit]

In 2022, elections in at least one county will occur:

Table of state, territorial, and federal results[edit]

This table shows the partisan results of president, congressional, gubernatorial, and state legislative races held in each state and territory in 2022. Note that not all states and territories hold gubernatorial, state legislative, and U.S. Senate elections in 2022. The five territories and Washington, D.C., do not elect members of the U.S. Senate, and the territories do not take part in presidential elections; instead, they each elect one non-voting member of the House. Nebraska's unicameral legislature and the governorship and legislature of American Samoa are elected on a non-partisan basis and therefore political party affiliation is not listed.
