Ciotti I would say is going to lose. I will be surprised if the Belesi/Pearson race isn't as close as the Mejias/Belesi races from 07 and 09 were.

What is really upsetting is that as of 2010 there were almost 1,500,000 people in Suffolk (24% under age 18 or 360,000 residents) ) and as of this post, 4/5 of the precincts in Suffolk are in -- which is a shade over 200,000 voters.

Talk about apathy

A little over 883,000 are registered voters, still pretty poor turnout, which unfortunately is par for the course in off year elections

In the Nassau Legislature races it looks like we will have two that will come down to recounts and absentee ballots.

Democrat Carrie Solanges has defeated incumbent Republican John Ciotti in the 3rd, Ciotti hasn't given up yet as he cited absentee ballots, but wih Solanges up by 3.91% or 431 votes it looks like absentees won't be enough to help Ciotti.

The 14th as expected was very tight, the incumbent Republican Joe Belesi has a 51 vote lead (0.46%) over Eva Pearson.

Another close race is in the 18th (the only open race) with Democrat Diane Yauturo retiring. Republican Robert Germino Jr holds a 37 (0.31%) vote lead over Democrat Delia Deriggi-Whitton.

So it might be a few weeks until we know who controls the legislature.

If you're rejected the system and the same empty suits that both parts put up every year, then there's really no point in voting. To paraphrase George Carlin, if you voted, you're part of the problem.
