State Attorneys General Election Map

Crowell & Moring’s interactive State AG election maplisting provides key information about the each AG and his or her office.

Each state’s summary lists candidates for the 2020 election cycle. We will update the maplisting after the 2020 election results for the following states: Indiana, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Utah, Vermont, Washington and West Virginia. We will also include “Meet the New AG” information on The State AG Blog, which our team updates regularly with substantive and informative content about State AGs and the cutting-edge issues important to them.

Simply click over the States, District of Columbia, or Territories to learn more. To learn more about the elected AGs, view our 2020 Attorneys General Election Summary.
