Polls close at 9 pm Eastern Time, and you can stay up to date with the results here. In the meantime, here are five numbers you should know before today’s election.

$22 million

That’s how much money has been spent on election ads, according to ad tracker AdImpact. The high investment is indicative of both the high stakes in the race and the expensive media market the campaigns face. Democrats spent much more than Republicans, contributing $13.8 million compared to the GOP’s $8.1 million.

The House Majority PAC, the main outside group for House Democrats, contributed the most: $6 million. Its Republican counterpart, the Congressional Leadership Fund, spent $4.3 million. Suozzi and the DCCC each spent about $3.9 million and made a coordinated purchase of $94,000. Meanwhile, the NRCC put up about $1 million and Pilip spent a little over $300,000; The committee and Pilip also spent $1.4 million on coordinated purchases. The Secure New York State PAC, a Republican group, put about $1.1 million into the airwaves.

80,000 voters

That’s about the number of people who voted in person before Election Day, according to unofficial data from the Nassau and Queens county boards of elections. Among the roughly 66,800 who went to the polls during the nine days of early voting, Democrats (unsurprisingly) had an advantage. About 30,000 registered Democrats voted during that time, compared to about 23,000 registered Republicans and conservatives. (Pilip belongs to both the Republican and Conservative Parties). About 13,000 were “other” or “blank” voters.

Additionally, election officials have received more than 13,000 mail-in ballots as of Monday afternoon. Democrats also had an advantage in voting by mail over Republicans.

Democrats typically have an advantage when it comes to early voting, although Republicans have worked to get their voters out before Election Day. The votes that were received in advance could prove to be a deciding factor in the race, because…

4-10 inches

There is a snow storm hitting the area. The forecast, as of Monday night, of up to 10 inches of snow could dampen turnout. Some district schools will be closed and travel conditions will likely be poor throughout the day, which could make it difficult to cast a vote.

39 percent

That’s the percentage of active registered voters who are Democrats in the district. But although Democrats have the largest share of voters in NY-03, they have no control over the district. Republican voters make up 28 percent and there are about the same percentage of independent voters in the district.

The district is majority white and has high household incomes. Asian Americans also make up a sizable portion of the population, and Suozzi has had Democratic Rep. Grace Meng at her side in trying to capture the AAPI vote.

8 points

Both President Joe Biden and Santos won the district by about the same amount in 2020 and 2022, respectively. Republican Lee Zeldin, who ultimately lost to Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul in the 2022 gubernatorial race, also scored a big win in the region, by a double-digit margin. Expect the margin to be much smaller today.
