Elections are pivotal not only for the new leaders they bring in, but also for the eventual appointments those leaders make. These changes have cascading effects on policymaking at the state level, which is why we track state-level elections every year. This one-pager, updated for 2022, captures the results of this year’s elections.
For more detail on this year’s races and the resulting impact, see these two posts on Ed Note:
- 2022 Elections Outcomes and Implications for State Education Policy
- Meet the New Governors: Education Priorities of Governor-Elects
If you are looking for more general information about state governance structures, as it relates to education policy, visit our Education Governance Dashboard. It has everything you need to understand how each state approaches the governance and oversight of education, from early learning through postsecondary.
