ELECTION DAY 2017: Critical Updates On Today’s Races
New field updates, important links, and what you need to know about today’s legislative races
WASHINGTON — Today is Election Day and the DLCC is set to bring you critical updates on state Democrats’ campaigns to win crucial seats, flip chambers, and expand Democratic strength in statehouses nationwide.
The DLCC recently released our 2017 Election Day Playbook which highlights all of the must-watch state legislative elections happening today in New Jersey, Virginia, Washington, and all over the country.
  • Virginia — polls are open 6 a.m. – 7 p.m. ​
  • New Jersey — polls are open 6 a.m. – 8 p.m. 
  • Washington — Washington is an all-mail voting state and there is a time difference. First results are expected after 8 p.m. PT / 11 p.m. ET.
The DLCC hopes to be able to make the call on the Washington race tonight, but because Washington is a mail-in ballot state, it’s possible we won’t know the final results until Wednesday. We will work to keep you updated.
As the authority on state legislatures, the DLCC will be communicating with our team members, in-state partners, and caucus and legislative leaders on the ground and will have the accurate and timely updates.
The DLCC will send critical updates on state Democrats’ success as elections are called throughout the night. Be sure to follow the DLCC online at @TheDLCC on twitter and on Facebook for additional updates and content.
For more information on any of these races or to schedule an interview with the DLCC, please contact Mara Sloan at [email protected].
