General election results 2012

polling place sign election 2012

Updated 10 am Wednesday

Here's a quick scan of results from elections around the Capital Region Tuesday. This is not a comprehensive list, just some highlights. Numbers are unofficial, and some are bound to change as things settle.

OK, on with the results...

Incumbents are marked with an asterisk. Counties -- or parts of counties -- included districts are listed after the results for each race. And, again, these results are unofficial.

US House


The totals for the NY 19 are still one county, but it appears Chris Gibson will hold onto his seat in the re-configured district.

Another US House race -- the NY 21, which includes a part of northern Saratoga County -- appeared to be leaning narrowly toward incumbent Democrat Bill Owens over Republican challenger Matt Doheny. [NYT]

State Senate

Marchione, who beat McDonald in the Republican primary, was expected to win here. But McDonald had polled ahead of Andrews in a recent Siena poll.

The conventional wisdom was that this district had been tailored for Amedore. But in that same Siena poll Tkaczyk trailed Amedore by just a few points -- it was within the margin error.

By our totally unofficial count, Tkaczyk's lead is just 139 votes. So this is almost surely headed to absentee ballots and possibly a recount.

The totals in this race are short a few districts, but it appears Hugh Farley has won re-election. It's a bit of a habit for him. He was first elected to the state Senate in 1976.

That's Jimmy Miller, the former spokesman for the Albany Police Department.

Comments

So excited to see Cecilia Tkaczyk hold on against Amedore! Does anyone know how many outstanding absentee ballots there are?

Term limits anyone? How has Farley been in office since the '70s? That's just wrong.
