This is grim
Hawaii media has made much of the fact, and rightly so, that there are so many uncontested races for the 2008 election. If you think Hawaii is bad, consider this from Arkansas. According to Ballot Access News, in the upcoming November election, 17 out of 18 Arkansas Senate seats have only one person on the ballot. Only one district has a contested race, between a Democrat and a Republican. This is a startling statistic no matter what state you come from.
