'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 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, 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.
