  • MISSOURI is NOT electing its Governor in 2002.
  • MISSOURI is electing its U.S. Senator in the "Class 1" seat in 2002 for the final 4 years of that seatís 6-year term; NOTE: This is a Special Election: Democratic candidate for the "Class 1" seat in the U.S. Senate from MISSOURI (and then-Governor) Mel Carnahan predeceased the 7 November 2000 General Election, having been killed as the result of a plane crash on 16 October 2000; nevertheless, his name remained on the ballot and he was posthumously elected to the "Class 1" seat. His widow, Jean Carnahan- also a Democrat- was appointed by the Governor of the State to fill the vacancy and she was sworn in on 3 January 2001, at the same time as all the "Class 1" Senators regularly elected in the 2000 Elections. This appointment of Mrs. Carnahan technically expires after the polls close re: this Special Election (though she will be able to serve until the results of the Special Election are certified and the winner formally qualifies for the seat).; incumbent Democrat Jean Carnahan is a candidate for re-election to the Senate in this Special Election coinciding with the General Election.
  • MISSOURI is electing 9 Members of Congress (U.S. House of Representatives) in 2002; the State did not gain nor lose a House seat as a result of the 2000 Census.
