The countdown is on. We’re four days out from the Nov. 4 mid-term elections, and if you haven’t seen it yet, there’s no better time than now to explore our 2014 Election Guide—a roadmap to key federal, gubernatorial, state superintendent, and school board races, as well as an outline of education-related ballot measures.

You can download the PDF of the election guide and track the most important races for education policy as the returns roll in on Tuesday night.

My partners in education policy crime, Alyson Klein and Andrew Ujifusa, and I will be blogging late into the night Nov. 4 as races are called, so be sure to bookmark Politics K-12 and State EdWatch for up-to-the-minute results and analysis of the most important races.

And don’t forget to join us Nov. 12 for After the Storm: What the 2014 Election Results Mean for K-12 Policy, a live Education Week event at Gallup headquarters in Washington. Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., retiring after four decades in Congress, will reflect on his tenure and what the election results mean for education in the next Congress. We’ll also hear from a variety of education policy experts both on the Hill and in the think-tank world.
