There are two other elections we're following. We may know the winners Tuesday night, which is not likely to be the case in NYC.
Buffalo Mayoral Primary Election
Buffalo is the 89th largest city in the United States,1 with a population of about 255,000. It is the second largest city in New York. Mayoral terms are four years. The incumbent is Democrat Byron Brown, who is seeking his fifth term. That would be a record length for time in office here. Brown has two challengers.
As was the case in 2017, no Republicans are running. The city has not had a Republican mayor since the mid 1960s.
Polls close at 9:00 PM ET.
Alabama State House District 78
Special Democratic Primary Runoff
The District 78 vacancy was created by the resignation of Democrat Kirk Hatcher after he won a special election for an open State Senate seat.
Four Democrats competed in the May 25 primary. None received 50% of the vote, necessitating this runoff election between the top two finishers.
The Republican nominee is Loretta Grant. The special general election is September 7.
Polls close at 8:00 PM ET.
