America Decides 2014 - Results and Special Live Election Coverage from NPI
Welcome to Pacific NW Portal's 2014 midterm elections coverage

Democrats lose U.S. Senate majority to Republicans, Harry Reid acknowledges his time as Majority Leader will soon be at an end... Democrats have lost Senate seats in Montana, Alaska, Colorado, Iowa, Arkansas, South Dakota, West Virginia, and North Carolina... Only vulnerable incumbent to survive was New Hampshire's Jeanne Shaheen... Republicans keep control of governorships in Florida, Wisconsin, Maine, may also have Illinois and captured Maryland in an upset victory...

BUT: Several ballot measures to increase the minimum wage are passing, and on the Left Coast, Democratic incumbents running in statewide races survived challenges. Oregon is reelecting John Kitzhaber (governor) and Jeff Merkley (Senate), and California is reelecting Jerry Brown.

Frequently asked questions

Q: Where does Pacific NW Portal pull its election results numbers from?

A: We get our election results data directly from the Secretary of State and county elections officials across Washington. The percentages above, assuming our system has been able to poll for updates successfully, should be the same as what you'll find on vote.wa.gov or the website of your local county auditor. We poll for updates in accordance with the release schedules set forth by county elections officials. Please note that these are unofficial results and subject to change.

Q: Why are only a few dozen races shown?

A: Because there are hundreds of contests being decided across the state, and showing them all on one page would be impractical and unwise. Our goal isn't to duplicate what elections officials provide, but rather to make it easier to see the marquee and hot races in one place, so you don't have to click, click, and click to find what you're most interested in finding results for. We keep it simple, so you can see a lot just by doing a little bit of scrolling. All we show you are candidate names, photos, party affiliation or another descriptor, and the percentage of the vote they are currently receiving. That's it. To see how many votes the candidate (or ballot measure) actually got, you'll want to browse the election returns provided by the Secretary of State or your county auditor.

Q: Who decides which races are the "hot" races?

A: The staff and board of the Northwest Progressive Institute make those decisions, but we are significantly influenced by reader feedback. Many of the races above were requested for inclusion by readers like you.

Q: Why doesn't the matrix show where a particular district is within the state? These numbers mean nothing to me...

A: The matrix is minimalist in its design to maximize readability and usability. In the future, we're going to try to add maps that could be shown by clicking on the heading for the race, and possibly also additional information for all the races in a particular district. For the time being, you can use the district lookup tool provided by the State of Washington to see where a particular congressional or legislative district is in the state. Alternatively, check out these downloadable maps provided by the Redistricting Commission.
