The Massachusetts general election, 2010 was held on November 2, 2010 throughout Massachusetts. Primary elections took place on September 14, 2010.

Federal[edit]

United States Senate[edit]

Neither of Massachusetts's two seats in the United States Senate was up for election in the 2010 general election. In January 2010, Republican Scott Brown won a special election to fill the seat of Ted Kennedy.

United States House of Representatives[edit]

All of Massachusetts's ten seats in the United States House of Representatives are up for election in 2010. All of the incumbent Representatives are seeking re-election, with the exception of Bill Delahunt of District 10. Massachusetts is expected to lose one congressional seat in the redistricting that will follow the 2010 census.[1]

All ten seats were won by Democrats.[citation needed]

State[edit]

All state-wide offices were won by Democrats. The Senate and the House were overwhelmingly won by Democrats as well.

Governor[edit]

Former Harvard Pilgrim Health Care CEO Charlie Baker was the Republican candidate for Governor.[3] Convenience store franchise owner Christy Mihos dropped out of the race after a poor showing at the 2010 Massachusetts Republican Convention.[4]

Tisei (Republican),[7] former State Representative Paul Loscocco (Independent),[8] and surgery clerk and ergonomics assessor Richard P. Purcell (Green-Rainbow).[9]

James McKenna received 27,711 certified write-in votes, which was a United States and Massachusetts Electoral record. The ballot then listed Martha Coakley (D) and James McKenna (R)
