ELECTION RESULTS: Polls close in Brooklyn after high-turnout midterm election


The polls have closed in New York in the all-important midterm elections for control of the governor’s mansion, the state legislature and Congress.

Voter turnout was strong in Brooklyn — and across the Five Boroughs — on Election Day after nine days of early voting, with totals exceeding the 2021 turnout by 3 p.m. on Nov. 8. More than a million New Yorkers cast ballots this year in crucial contests, including the heated governor’s race between Democratic incumbent Kathy Hochul and Republican Congressmember Lee Zeldin.
