Quick-scan general election results 2018

New York State I Voted sticker

Here's a quick scan of results from elections for the US Senate, Capital Region US House seats, statewide offices, and Capital Region state legislature seats (and a couple other elections).

This is not a comprehensive list, just some highlights. Numbers are unofficial, and there are bound to be some changes on Wednesday.

On with the results...

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

Rensselaer County DA

It's notable anytime an incumbent loses. But Abelove has been the subject for a lot of scrutiny during his time in office, most recently because of his actions during the review of the Troy police shooting of Edson Thevenin. Abelove ended up being indicted on charges from the state Attorney General's office as part of that situation -- the indictment was later dismissed.

____

Saratoga County DA

Heggen was running unopposed in this election.

____

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

Very nice redesigns. I hope that area becomes more of a neighborhood rather than what it currently is - still an expressway that happens to have hotels and apartments along it. I'd love to see wide sidewalks and protected bike lanes from Crossgates all the way to Manning.
