Why are the 2020 State Elections Important? 

During a presidential election, state races often take a backseat. But for 2020, the electoral battles in the states are critical because there is much at stake: Whichever party ends up controlling the governorships and state legislatures in key states after the election will have substantial influence over the congressional redistricting process after the 2020 census.

How district maps are drawn will have an impact on state and congressional races for the next 10 years. New maps could increase the number of seats in Congress for one party or the other, effectively giving one party an advantage in securing majorities in state legislatures and the U.S. House of Representatives.

Control of governorships and state legislatures will also impact policymaking, as a growing number of states are taking the initiative to legislate on issues that the federal government has yet to address. For example, since the start of the Trump Administration, we have witnessed elected leaders in blue states playing a significant and prominent role in fighting federal policies that they view as adverse to the interests of their constituents. Democratic state attorneys general have mounted a firewall against President Trump’s policies on issues like immigration and energy development, launching a number of lawsuits to oppose controversial administration policies. Such resistance isn’t new — during the Obama Administration, Republican state attorneys general challenged executive actions and policies in much the same way.

Amidst all the predictions and possibility for upsets, one thing remains certain — this year’s state elections are among the most widely anticipated in many years because of their potential to create shifts in in the political landscape of our country that extend far beyond state lines.
