Fortunately, you can keep track of all these races with our handy cheat sheet, complete with candidate names, poll closing times, and results links for every contest. You'll also want to keep our Virginia county benchmarks post handy to gauge how well Democrats are doing in the Old Dominion as returns come in.
5:02 PM PT: Polls are now closed in New Jersey, where Gov. Chris Christie is set to cruise to a second term.
5:11 PM PT (Darth Jeff): In Houston, early votes give Mayor Anise Parker a 56-29 lead over his main opponent former City Attorney Ben Hall. Parker needs at least 50 percent plus one vote to avoid a December runoff with Hall.
5:15 PM PT (Darth Jeff): In Manchester, incumbent Republican Ted Gatsas has been reelected mayor of New Hampshire's largest city 53-47 over Democrat Patrick Arnold. Gatsas has been talked up as a potential Gubernatorial candidate and while a win is a win, this is hardly an impressive showing.
5:18 PM PT: Well, VA-Gov is definitely looking a lot closer than expected. We're now up to 45% reporting and Cuccinelli (R) leads McAuliffe (D) 50-43.
5:23 PM PT: A lot of polls will have been very wrong if this holds:
5:25 PM PT (Steve Singiser): At the legislative level, the news is also not great for Democrats. Despite hopes they could pick up several seats in a blue wave, the absence thus far of said wave has also diminished their prospects in the lege. They lead in just two districts: NoVa's HD-32 (where GOP incumbent Tag Greason is down 51-49 with just 20 percent reporting) and in HD-93 (where Democrat Monty Mason leads GOPer Mike Watson 55-45 with just under half the vote in). Since the GOP came with a built-in gain (HD-04, where the Dem incumbent retired and no Democrat filed to take his place), that would be a net gain of a single seat for Democrats. That would leave the House of Delegates in Virginia at 67 Republicans, 33 Democrats.
