Where can I find published the official election results for New York State (USA)?

We just had an election which included many NY State offices (as well as federal US) but their results are very hard to find.

  • BallotPedia has federal results, and information about the state election, but no results.

  • Googling for terms like "NY state senate elections 2018" returns results for the NY senators to the federal government, which is entirely different.

  • I have found news articles that describe in general terms the election results - e.g., that the NY Senate now has a majority of Democrats - but not a specific breakdown of the exact results, district by district.

This may well be a problem for other US states also, so if there is any single source which is comprehensive for all of them that would be a bonus.

Thank you

As of the 7th November 2018 it seems very probable the final certified results from yesterday's election aren't out yet (it appears that this can take up to 25 days), but does the following page of uncertified results from the New York State Board of Elections Election Night Reporting Page serve your purposes?

I found this via the New York General Election page at thegreenpapers.com, which I'd suggest as a good aggregator for election results in the US.

  • That seems to be just what I had in mind, thank you! Will the certified results ultimately appear in the same location? – DaveInCaz Nov 7 '18 at 15:49
  • @DaveInCaz As in somewhere on elections.ny.gov? Yes. As in that specific link, that bit I'm less certain of. – origimbo Nov 7 '18 at 15:52
