The United States Election 2010 Web Archive Archive is a selective collection of approximately 1,250 sites archived between July 2010 and December 2010. This is a collection of Web sites produced by congressional and gubernatorial candidates whose names appeared on ballots for the November 2, 2010 midterm election. In previous United States Election web archive collections the Library of Congress included websites of political parties, government, advocacy groups, bloggers, and other individuals and groups expressing relevant views. The 2010 midterm elections resulted in a shift in the House of Representatives with the Republican Party regaining majority control. Candidate campaign websites for 2010 featured links to (and from) social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn and others --- the Library's web archive for Election 2010 typically includes such social media channels in the scope for each website's archiving in order to provide a fuller representation of how candidates presented themselves via the Internet to the electorate. The election took place on November 2, 2010.
