United States gubernatorial elections, 2010
November 2, 2010
2010 gubernatorial elections:
     Democratic incumbent     Retiring Democrat     Republican incumbent     Retiring Republican     No election

The United States gubernatorial elections will be held on Tuesday, November 2, 2010 in 36 states and two territories. In addition, Utah will hold a special election following the resignation of Republican Governor Jon Huntsman on August 11, 2009 to become the United States Ambassador to China. Of the 39 elections total to be held, currently 20 seats are held by Democratic incumbents and 19 by Republican incumbents.

Of the Democratic held governorships up for election in 2010, 7 are held by incumbents who are term-limited, while 3 others are voluntarily choosing not to seek election or re-election. Currently, it is unclear whether Wyoming's term limits law will be upheld; if they are not, the Democratic incumbent likely will run for a third term.

Of the Republican held governorships up for election in 2010, 8 are held by incumbents who are term-limited, while 4 others are voluntarily choosing not to seek re-election.

These elections will coincide with the elections for the United States Senate and the United States House of Representatives as well as other state and local elections.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
