MASSAPEQUA - One of the most closely watched races on Long Island this Election Day is the race for Nassau County executive.

Democrat Tom Suozzi is hoping to win back the job he lost to Ed Mangano four years ago, but he says it all depends on voter turnout.

Suozzi voted in his hometown of Glen Cove this morning. He's been campaigning non-stop to try and get as much support to polls as he can.

For Mangano, he heads into today relying on the points he has campaigned on and said his record should prove why he should be re-elected.

Officials say four years ago the race was so tight, ballots had to be hand counted. Mangano won by not even 400 votes.

Newsday's political reporter Rick Brand says voter turnout is expected to be low today across the Island because there's no presidential or gubernatorial race happening.

More voters are expected in Nassau because of the county executive race.
