Updated Wednesday 9:20 am.

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.

The state Board of Election has a page that aggregates county-by-county results from around the state.


Interesting to compare the governor results statewide versus Albany. Astorino was pretty much the same in both places. But Cuomo took a hit in Albany while Green candidate Hawkins picked up all those dropped points. One would have to surmise that many Albany residents are unhappy with Cuomo but not ready to simply jump ship to his nearest competitor.

Craig, that makes sense. I have trouble voting for a republican for anything other than coroner (I always vote republican for coroner though - who else would be so adept at handling death than someone from the party that encourages it the most?). I voted for Cuomo only as a thank you for the SAFE Act, otherwise I would've voted for Hawkins as well.

@JayK Well I'm sure Mr. Slimeball *ahem* Mr. Cuomo certainly appreciates your thank you. I'm sure you will then continue to enjoy our bully for a governor and his inevitable continuation of the desecration of our enumerated rights. Hey, maybe when he's done pumping more corruption into NYS politics and further demoralizing New Yorkers, you can vote for him when he assuredly makes a run for president in 2016.

I'm more likely to vote for Hillary, if she runs. Again, if it wasn't for the SAFE Act, I'd have gone with Hawkins. I believe in rewarding candidates who do the really important things like protecting their state's citizens (and I'd also add encouraging the freedom to marry the person of your choice). Either way, is it simple anger that causes you to literally pathologize my voting record or is it something more serious that you should seek help for? Since I can't think of a single right you've lost since he was elected, I'm worried it's the latter.

They should turn Maiden Lane into a stepped pedestrian street, like they have all over Europe. We don't need to reinvent the wheel, they do steep small streets pretty well across the pond, let's look for some precedents... Human scaled lighting is critical too, that goes for the whole city. And we don't need paint on the road, just signage perpendicular to the flow of traffic at the bridge entrance. I also echo the call for basic, ongoing maintenance to our current infrastructure. How about some weed removal in sidewalks, etc?
