Overview and Live Results: New York Assembly District 68 Special Election

New York State Assembly District 68

Democrats hold 103 of the 150 seats in the New York State Assembly. There are 43 Republicans as well as one member from the Independence Party. There are three vacancies. Terms are for two years; the next regular elections are in November. These will be contested using newly redistricted boundaries that have not yet been finalized.

Vacancies in Districts 60 and 72 will be filled in special elections on February 15. The prior incumbents of these two districts, both Democrats, were elected to the New York City Council in November.

District 68 is a New York City district largely comprised of the East Harlem area of Manhattan. Democrat Robert Rodriguez resigned in early November after being nominated to become New York's Secretary of State by Gov. Kathy Hochul (D). He is acting in that position now, awaiting confirmation by the State Senate. Rodriguez had been in the State Assembly for about 10 years.

The major party nominees are Eddie Gibbs (D) and Daby Carreras (R). Polls close at 9:00 PM Eastern Time.
