It's Election Night in many states across the country, and we're liveblogging the results of races large and small. The biggest contests are for governor in New Jersey and Virginia and mayor in New York City, but there are many other hotly contested elections that are up for grabs, including attorney general and the state House of Delegates in Virginia; a key state Senate seat in Washington; and mayoral races in Boston, Seattle, and many other cities.

Results: New Jersey | New York | Virginia

5:43 PM PT (Darth Jeff): 5% reporting in Boston and Councilor John Connolly leads state Rep. Marty Walsh 58-42 in the mayoral race. Boston usually retains its mayors for the long haul so the winner could be around awhile.  

5:45 PM PT: We're now at 61% reporting in VA-Gov and Cuccinelli's lead has shrunk to 48-45. And the good news is that our model, which has been inching in the Dem direction all night, is now (finally) projecting a T-Mac win.

5:46 PM PT (Darth Jeff): About a quarter of precincts reporting in Charlotte and Cannon leads Peacock by a smaller 55-45.

5:48 PM PT (Darth Jeff): About 40% reporting in Greensboro and Democrat Vaughan is smoking Republican incumbent Perkins in the city's mayoral race 56-44.

5:48 PM PT (Darth Jeff): 13% reporting in Boston and Connolly is down to a 52-48 lead over Walsh.  

5:49 PM PT (Steve Singiser): As the night has wore on, the Virginia House of Delegates is showing signs of a better Democratic night than previously thought. Even though most of the leads are infinitesimal, five Democrats are now leading against their GOP incumbents. The good news for DK fans? Three of them are DK-endorsed candidates: Kathleen Murphy (HD-34), Jennifer Boysko (HD-86), and Rob Farinholt (HD-94). Our other two candidates (Atif Qarni and John Bell) are within a handful of points. Two other Democrats: Monty Mason in HD-93 and Elizabeth Miller in HD-32, also had leads.

5:50 PM PT: VA-Gov: 68% reporting, Cuccinelli up 2.3%.

5:50 PM PT (Darth Jeff): Now 22% reporting in Boston and Walsh has a very narrow lead over Connolly.

5:53 PM PT (Darth Jeff): 38% reporting in Charlotte's mayoral race and it keeps getting closer. Democrat Cannon now leads Republican Peacock 53-47.

5:56 PM PT: It's super-tight in the AL-01 (R) runoff, with Byrne and Young separated by just 7 votes with 9% reporting.

5:58 PM PT (Darth Jeff): 45% in Charlotte and Cannon up 54-46.

5:59 PM PT (Laura Clawson): The liveblog continues here.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
