(WBNG Binghamton) For the first time in New York history, state-wide election results will be available online on the night of the election.

New York State is making it easier for people to get election results soon after polls close.

The website is called the New York State Board of Elections Election Night Reporting Page. It will have results for the six statewide propositions posted Tuesday night.

It will show the results for each proposition as well as how each county voted. Before this site, the state did not publish the vote totals for state-wide races or propositions on election night.

Polls in New York close at 9 p.m The state board of elections asked that all counties submit their first returns before 10 p.m and continue to update until final.

All results reported on election night will still be unofficial until all absentee and military ballots are counted.
