Ballot issues, governors' races dominate election

Wide range of ballot questions, 2 governors' races dominate last major election before 2012 By The Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) ' The questions on ballots range from illegal immigration and union rights to President Obama's health care law. The answers from voters could offer valuable insight into the temperament of the American public.

Voters across the nation will decide a host of statewide initiatives Tuesday and elect governors in Mississippi and Kentucky. Their choices may point to political prospects for 2012, when an additional 10 governorships and the presidency are up for grabs.

In both states with governors' races, the chief executive offices are expected to stay in the hands of incumbent parties, despite the nation's stubbornly weak economy.

Tuesday's election will be voters' last major judgment of the year. But regardless of the referendums and races, experts agree that economic woes will be the most important factor in 2012.
