Daily Kos Elections Liveblog Banner
It's Election Night in many states across the country, and we're liveblogging the results of races large and small. The biggest contests are for governor in New Jersey and Virginia and mayor in New York City, but there are many other hotly contested elections that are up for grabs, including attorney general and the state House of Delegates in Virginia; a key state Senate seat in Washington; and mayoral races in Boston, Seattle, and many other cities.

Results: New Jersey | New York | Virginia

8:16 PM PT (Darth Jeff): Minneapolis employs a ranked-choice method so it's hard to know for sure who's won until all the votes are counted and recounted. However, local media reports Councilor Betsy Hodge is on track to prevail in the open seat mayor's race.  

8:20 PM PT (Darth Jeff): It's all over in Nassau. Democrat Tom Suozzi has conceded to Republican Ed Mangano in the County Executive race.  

8:25 PM PT (David Jarman): In the state of Washington, I-522, which would mandate labeling of genetically modified food, is failing 41-59. However, the much-watched $15 minimum wage initiative in the town of SeaTac, WA, is passing 54-46. In the progressive vs. progressive mayoral race in Seattle, Ed Murray leads incumbent Mike McGinn 56-43.

8:30 PM PT (Darth Jeff): 49 percent reporting in New York City and Bill de Blasio is crushing Joe Lhota 73-25. Unsurprisingly, the AP has called the race.

8:37 PM PT (Steve Singiser): The vote is pretty much completely tabulated in New Jersey, and it looks like the Democrats dodged some serious peril there. Despite the lopsided re-election for GOP Gov. Chris Christie, his coattails were minimal. With nearly all precincts in, it looks like the GOP knocked off just two Democratic Assemblymen (Nelson Albano in AD-01, and Timothy Eustace in AD-38), and held onto all five of their vulnerable Senators. The net result? A continued 24-16 Democratic majority in the Senate, and an only slightly narrowed 46-34 edge in the Assembly.

8:42 PM PT (Laura Clawson): The liveblog continues here.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
