*The Cook Political Report deems most competitive those races which have a Toss Up or Lean D/R rating going into election day.

†Polls close in Arkansas and Alaska at 8:30PM EST and 1:00AM EST, respectively. However, as the Cook Political Report does not rate any of the races in these states as competitive, those poll closing times and races do not appear on this checklist.
