Polls Are Closed in Special Election

Voters in New York's 26th Congressional District are choosing a Representative in the hotly contested race between Kathy Hochul, Jane Corwin, Jack Davis and Ian Murphy.

The race has gained national attention and is being called by some an early harbinger of trends to watch for in the 2012 general election in the House of Representatives.

The district stretches from suburban Buffalo to Western Monroe county and includes all of Livingston County.

WXXI News will have election results posted here tonight and complete coverage including reaction Wednesday during Morning Edition only on WXXI-AM 1370.
