'Uncontested Races'- for purposes of this listing- are deemed to be those election contests in which there is only one candidate for a given office, a candidate who faces no Major Party candidate and no bona fide Minor Party and/or Independent opposition: the term 'bona fide' denoting candidacies which do not- in the opinion of TheGreenPapers.com- appear to be otherwise frivolous or moribund; write-in candidacies may or may not be included in our listing of candidates at this site's discretion and the listing of a given race as 'Uncontested' may simply reflect the lack of any confirmable information regarding write-in candidacies that might otherwise exist. Due to the nature of ballot access laws and rules in a given jurisdiction and/or the manner in which non-Major Party candidates might find themselves listed on a given ballot, it is possible that a race herein listed below as 'Uncontested' may, in fact, not be: therefore, although 'The Green Papers' has made every reasonable effort to determine if the sole candidate noted re: any election contest this site herein lists as being uncontested is, indeed, the only candidate running for that office, such information should not be taken as necessarily being definitive; nevertheless, those election contests which appear on this listing are those which the Staff of TheGreenPapers.com has deemed to be most accurately described as being uncontested in the General Election.
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.
