'Offices with Only One Major Party Candidate' - for purposes of this listing- are deemed to be those election contests in which there is only one major party candidate (reference The Classification of Political parties listed on TheGreenPapers.com) running for a given office on the ballot. Candidates of a Major Party who might be running as write-in or balloted as a minor party candidate (a party other than Democratic, Democratic-Farmer Labor, Democratic-Nonpartisan League, Republican) are not counted as having been formally nominated as Major Party candidates in this tabulation.

 
 

Parties appear in parenthesis and italics when a candidate receives the endorsement of a given Party and/or official sources indicate a candidate's association with a particular Party but only where the Party in question does not appear on the actual ballot as such.
