Yes, indeed, we did reclaim some of those SoS positions with the 2010 elections (and in some cases, the Governors appoint them, so in those states that flipped party control, we gained those as well). We currently have 29 where there is a “defined” office.

As of now we have the following (June 2011):
AL (elected)
AK (the Lt Governor holds the responsibilities)
AR (captured for the first time in 2010 since Reconstruction)
AZ (elected)
CO (captured from the Dems in 2010)
FL (app’t by Governor)
GA (elected)
ID (elected)
IN (elected)
IA (captured from the Dems in 2010)
KS (captured from the Dems in 2010)
LA (elected)
ME (elected by legislature, captured by GOP in 2010)
MI (elected)
MS (elected)
NE (elected)
NJ (the Lt Governor holds this job)
NM (elected - captured in 2010 for first time since 1928)
ND (elected)
OH (elected, captured from Sorosbot in 2010)
OK (elected)
PA (app’t by Governor)
SC (elected)
SD (elected)
TN (elected by legislature)
TX (app’t by Governor)
VA (app’t by Governor)
WA (elected)
WY (elected)

The Dems have:
CA (elected)
CT (elected)
DE (elected)
IL (elected)
KY (election up this year, the former GOP occupant resigned, now held by Dem appointee)
MD (app’t by Governor)
MA (elected)
MN (elected - a key Sorosbot here)
MO (elected - Sorosbot ?)
MT (elected - another Sorosbot ?)
NV (elected - Sorosbot ?)
NH (elected by legislature, one Dem has held this office since 1976, but he is respected by both parties)
NY (app’t by Governor)
NC (elected - Sorosbot ?)
OR (elected)
RI (elected)
VT (elected)
WV (elected - Sorosbot ?)
WI (elected, Doug LaFollette - probably the most odious rodent SoS in the country currently, narrowly survived reelection in 2010)

Great research! Knowledge of this Soros funded plan gives ammo to opponents of the elected SOS’s. Don’t know how it would effect those who are appointed but I guess if the governor has to answer yes or no to knowledge of Soros influence, that may make the governor think twice about certain potential appointments.

They have Hawaii LT Governor too.

Interesting that both Alaska and Hawaii gave SOS responsibilities to the Lieutenant Governor.

Excellent research as always, Field. Great job. It's scary how many of the current SOS’s in America are Soros puppets. In addition to whether they're elected or appointed, another thing I'd like to know is exactly how powerful each of their offices are. I imagine it varies widely from state to state.

For example, Illinois is one of only two states (wikipedia states the other is Michigan) that puts the SOS office in charge of motor vehicles, effectly making Secretary of State Jesse White the transportation secretary as well (he's also the State Librarian, custodian of the Illinois State Capitol, and maintains the Illinois State Capitol Police force. I doubt this is common for SOS’s in other states. I would probably rank our SOS second only to the Governor in power, although under the state constitution the Attorney General is next in line after the Governor and (worthless) Lt. Governor's office. Some of the SOS’s may be elected statewide officials in their own right, but still figureheads in terms of actual power.

The only good thing for us that the current RAT Secretary of State has gone senile and is so low-key he's been invisible lately.
