All 213 Legislative seats were up for re-election this year and while it is too close to call for a few of the major races, Senate Democrats did not do as well as they thought heading into Tuesday night.
Democrats needed two more seats to gain a supermajority but they could end up losing between 4-5 Senate seats, possibly more, according to the State Board of elections website.
These are preliminary results and the Associated Press has not officially called many of these races, but here is a brief breakdown of the votes so far. The results are not close to being finalized and millions of absentee ballots are yet to be counted.
District #1: Republican Assemblyman Anthony Palumbo is slightly ahead with 57% of the vote so far compared to his Democratic opponent Laura Ahearn with 43%. This open Suffolk County seat, which will be left vacant by GOP Senator Kenneth LaValle, has not been yet been officially called by the AP.
District #2: Republican Mario Mattera is leading slightly against Democrat Michael Michael Siderakis with 64% of the vote. This seat belonged to former Senate Minority Leader John Flanagan. This race has not been called by the Associated Press.
District #3: Republican Alexis Weik has pulled ahead in a hotly contested race against Democratic incumbent Senator Monica Martinez. This Long Island seat has been held by Republicans for decades until Martinez won in 2018. This race has not been called by the Associated Press.
District #5: Incumbent Democratic Senator Jim Gaughran is losing right now to Republican Edmund Smyth who has 55% of the votes. The Associated Press has not called this race.
