Legislators occupying nearly one out of every four seats are unopposed for re-election. Slightly more incumbent legislators face primary challengers.

A total of 41 incumbent legislators (23 R, 18 D) have no known opponents, and another 12 (5 R, 7 D) face no major-party challengers. Another 45 incumbent legislators (33 R, 12 D) face contested primary elections. These figures are based on the latest available compilations of candidate filings posted by the Secretary of State’s office and minor parties’ websites. Parties were required by statute to submit their certified candidate lists to the Secretary of State yesterday (Tuesday), and those lists were required to be posted by the Secretary of State today (Wednesday).
