 LLRX.com -- ResearchRoundUp - Federal & State Election Resources -- Updated June 17, 2002
The Board of Elections and Ethics posts a calendar of upcoming elections, a list of primary election candidates, the times and locations of polling places, the results of previous elections (dating back to 1994), and information about elected officials, voter registration, and applying to be a candidate.
The Elections Division of the Secretary of State has searchable databases of the election calendars for 2000-2002, candidates (currently, for the 2002 primary), political committees and initiatives, referendums, and referrals.
For 2002 elections, the Secretary of State's Elections Elections Information provides a list of candidates after the primary, texts of ballot question and the proposed constitutional amendment, offices to be filled, and abbreviated, complete, and municipal election calendars.

 Armenia
During the 1999 parliamentary elections, the coverage of political parties on state television and other media generally was balanced and largely neutral.
Most of the by-elections were carried out peacefully; however, after hearing extensive evidence about irregularities in Yerevan's Arabkir district, the Constitutional court ordered the cancellation of the results in the May 2000 by-election.
It was also announced that municipal elections would be held on October 20, that the next presidential election would take place on February 19, 2003, and that the next legislative general election would take place in May 2003, possibly at the same time as the referendum on a proposed package of constitutional amendments.

At least $2.376 billion was spent for the purpose of influencing 2002 congressional elections.
Just 0.22 percent of the U.S. voting age population contributed at least $200 to a 2002 congressional candidate; this narrow donor pool was responsible for 76 percent of all individual candidate contributions.

 TURKEY'S NOVEMBER 2002 ELECTIONS: A NEW BEGINNING?
Given the available election results and expectations concerning the impact of continuing economic crisis on party preferences, it should be hardly surprising that an even higher level of volatility compared to 1999 preferences took place in November 2002.
Until the November 2002 elections, despite the very limiting 10% nation-wide electoral support for getting representation in the parliament, more and more parties were able to attract voters’ support in elections and ultimately winning representation.
In 2002 it was AKP which on average gained less than half of the electoral support that DEHAP obtained in East and Southeastern provinces that benefited from this representational threshold.

 The stakes are high in the 2002 congressional elections   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
The president is not running this year, it being what is called a mid-term election (meaning the election that occurs in the middle of the president's four-year term).
Not only was the 2000 presidential election one of the closest in history, but the total votes in the 2000 congressional and Senate races were extraordinarily close as well.
Every mid-term election held during the first term of a newly-elected president, the president's party has lost seats in Congress.

 Potentials of the 2002 Elections
Certainly George W. Bush's behavior in attempting to usurp the American Presidency during the 2000 elections — blocking manual recounts of punch-card ballots when he knows machine counts of such ballots are fulty because he signed a Texas law requiring manual recounts in close elections — have enraged at least half of the American people.
But I think we can trust at least some once and future candidates to recognize that the trend of close elections is only beginning, and that their own self-interest is served by improving the turnout to the polls and the accuracy of vote counts — at least for those who will vote for them.
If Al Gore does pull the election out of the mud at the last bell, it will be just as impossible for his administration to pass progressive legislation in the next two years.

 Atlas Forum - 2002 U.S. Elections
The only real complaint I'd have with an officeholder switching parties is if they do it soon after their election--they were put into office by a basic core electorate, and to switch parties is a slap in the face of a good number of the people who voted for them.
They might claim that their first loyalty is their constituency, but for 95% of them their own power is #1 in their minds.
Earlier this week I saw in Newsday that a NY State Senator from the Bronx switched from D to R. She is of Puerto Rican ancestry and had endorsed Pitaki for relection to the governorship.

 The 2002 Elections: Much Sound, Little Fury by David Brady and Morris Fiorina
David Brady is a senior fellow and associate director for research at the Hoover Institution.
One reason that congressional Democrats fared so badly in the 1994 elections was that Democrats controlled everything and thus took full blame.
After Newt Gingrich and Bob Dole assumed leadership of their respective chambers, however, President Clinton was able to shift blame to the Republicans and "triangulate" to reelection, an option now unavailable to President Bush.

 On the 2002 Midterm Elections...
Widespread anecdotal accounts of voting irregularities, disenfranchised voters and absolutely accurate and, in many cases, understated criticisms of abysmal leadership from Tom Daschle and the Democratic Party are not difficult to find.
I note with irony the fact that much of the new software to resolve voting issues is either created by Microsoft and/or the companies that own and sell the voting machines, including one with investments from the Rothschild family.
These are the same firms connected to the election debacle of 2000.

 National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) Union Representation Elections, 1998-2002
One of the principal functions of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is to determine, through secret-ballot elections, the free choice of employees regarding whether or not they wish to be represented by a union in dealing with their employers, and if they do wish to be, by which union.
The percent of NLRB elections won by unions ranged from 51 to 56 percent over the 5-year period, with slight increases occurring from 2000 to 2002.
The number of eligible employees affected by NLRB elections that were won by unions fluctuated over the 5-year period, increasing substantially from 1998 to 1999 and declining markedly from 2000 to 2001.

Or was it the glare of publicity since the 2000 presidential election that brought the charade to an end?
This year might instead be a repeat of the 2000 presidential election, when the polls accurately predicted the winner (Gore), but the voting system in Florida collapsed under the weight of voting machine failure, election day chicanery, and outright disenfranchisement of thousands of fl voters by Republican state officials.
