The Ligurian regional election of 2010 took place on 28–29 March 2010.

The incumbent President Claudio Burlando of the centre-left Democratic Party (PD) faced Sandro Biasotti, backed by The People of Freedom (PdL) and Lega Nord Liguria.[1] Biasotti was President of the Region from 2000 to 2005, when he was defeated by Burlando. The Union of the Centre (UdC), a traditionally centre-right political force, supported the centre-left candidate Burlando.

Burlando secured a second consecutive term, but the PdL came out as the largest party in the region.
