Smackdown Your Vote!: State election primaries to determine who runs in 2010
The 2010 national elections are shaping up to be one of the more contentious non-presidential elections in recent history. All seats in the U.S. House of Representatives are up for election, as are many seats in the U.S. Senate. Many statewide elections this year will also determine who runs your state as governor and members of state legislatures. The results of these elections will impact everything from jobs and the economy and education services in your community, to key national issues like healthcare, the war on terror and the future of our global environment.
All 50 states will each hold state-wide primaries to determine who may run as Republican or Democratic candidates in the general election on Nov. 2. Most of these primaries will be held between May through September.
WWE urges all voters to register and consider voting in the appropriate state primary to let your voices be heard!
