The 1999 United States general elections, which were held on Tuesday, November 2, were off-year elections in which no members of the Congress were standing for election. However, there were three gubernatorial races, state legislative elections in four states, numerous citizen initiatives, mayoral races in several major cities, and a variety of local offices on the ballot.

United States Congressional elections[edit]

United States House of Representatives special elections[edit]

In 1999, three special elections to fill vacancies in the House of Representatives were held. They were for California's 42nd congressional district, Georgia's 6th congressional district, and Louisiana's 1st congressional district.

State electioins[edit]

Gubernatorial elections[edit]

Three states held elections for Governor in 1999. Kentucky and Mississippi voted on November 2. Louisiana's election dates do not coincide with that of most states: Louisiana held its open primary on October 23. A runoff election was not needed.

Other state-wide Officer elections[edit]

In the three states which held regularly scheduled state general elections, elections for state executive branch offices of Lieutenant Governor (in a separate election in Louisiana and Mississippi and on the same ticket as the gubernatorial nominee in Kentucky), Secretary of state, state Treasurer, state Auditor, state Attorney General, and Commissioners of Insurance and Agriculture will be held. In addition, there will also be elections for each states' respective state Supreme Courts and state appellate courts.

State legislative elections[edit]

Four states and one territory held elections for their state legislatures.

Initiatives and Referenda[edit]

Local elections[edit]

Mayoral elections[edit]

Many major American cities held their mayoral elections in 1999.
