Republican candidates are poised to take the majority of the Suffolk County Legislature for the first time in 16 years after three Democratic legislators were unseated Tuesday.

GOP candidates are leading in 12 out of 18 Suffolk legislative races, with Democratic incumbents being ousted in at least three of those races, according to unofficial early returns tallied by the Suffolk Board of Elections.
