Key races to watch on Election Day
All of Long Island's seats in the state Legislature and the House of Representatives are up for grabs this Election Day.
When the results start to come in, several key races on the Island will be closely watched. Among the tightest contests is the congressional race for the 1st District, where six-term Democrat Tim Bishop is facing off against Republican Lee Zeldin. The race has taken a bitter turn in the final stretch, and is currently considered too close to call.
Another closely watched congressional race is western Nassau's 4th District, where Democrat Kathleen Rice is pitted against Republican Bruce Blakeman.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo's job is also at stake as he faces Republican challenger Rob Astorino, the current Westchester County executive.
Despite several high-profile races, analysts say low voter turnout is expected.
The polls open at 6 a.m. Tuesday and close at 9 p.m. News 12 Long Island will bring you live election coverage and real-time results.
