United States gubernatorial elections will be held on November 8, 2022, in 36 states and three territories. Also, special elections may take place (depending on state law) if other gubernatorial seats are vacated.

As most governors serve four-year terms, the last regular gubernatorial elections for all but two of the seats took place in 2018. The governors of New Hampshire and Vermont, each of whom serves two-year terms, ran in the 2020 elections. The 2022 gubernatorial elections will take place concurrently with several other federal, state and local elections.

Partisan composition

Going into the election, there are 28 Republican governors and 22 Democratic governors in the United States. This class of governors is made up of 20 Republicans and 16 Democrats.

In contrast to 2018, where Republicans were defending eight seats in states won by Donald Trump in 2016, Republicans hold six seats in states won by Joe Biden in 2020. Meanwhile, Democrats were defending one governorship from the last midterm elections in a state won by Trump in 2016 and are now defending one governorship in a state that Trump won in 2020.

Election predictions

Several sites and individuals publish predictions of competitive seats. These predictions look at factors such as the strength of the incumbent (if the incumbent is running for re-election), the strength of the candidates, and the partisan leanings of the state (reflected in part by the state's Cook Partisan Voting Index rating). The predictions assign ratings to each state, with the rating indicating the predicted advantage that a party has in winning that seat.
