Turn on any cable news channel and you’re likely to see pundits dissecting the latest from the Obama and Romney campaigns. But you’re unlikely to hear about the 6,052 state legislative seats also up for election this year. That’s 82 percent of our nation’s state legislators. To get an overview of this year’s statehouse elections, NCSL’s Jon Kuhl spoke with NCSL elections expert Tim Storey. Tim is a nationally recognized elections expert and is frequently quoted by local and national newspapers, including USA Today and the National Journal.

Current party control of state legislatures can be found on NCSL’s StateVote page. And for more pre-election coverage of state legislative races and ballot issues, look for the October/November issue of NCSL’s State Legislatures magazine.
