Secretary of State races in states where the SoS is in charge of certifying the votes.

Incumbent candidates shown in italics. If the seat is open, the candidate of the incumbent party will be listed first, and the party indicator will be in italics.

Note: I will be away from a computer for a few hours this evening, but will update before I leave and as soon as I get back.
Update Midnight: Just past midnight CST and I've been back and updating for about an hour. I'll be doing another update run-through, and this time I'll be dropping the candidates with under 5% of the vote. If I were only doing 3-5 races I'd keep them in, but this list has 20!
Update 2AM CST: It's 2am here and I have to get some sleep. States with 100% in are noted, with the winner and party listed. States with most of the vote in, I marked the party that was ahead in parenthesis. I'll be by again in the morning to update things before work.
Update 09:15 CST: Most of the races are decided; I'll check in during the day from work to see if there are any more results.
