Polls have closed in Delaware.

It's expected to be a very tight race for President while here in the First State there are a number of races of interest involving Lt. Governor Matt Denn, Congressman John Carney and state Insurance Commissioner Karen Weldin Stewart to name a few.

Voter registration numbers suggest that incumbent Democrats holding statewide and federal offices in Delaware have the edge on GOP challengers trying to unseat them Tuesday.

Of Delaware's, 632,000 registered voters, more than 300,000 are Democrats. Republicans number about 182,000 voters, and there are some 150,000 unaffiliated voters.

GOP congressional candidate Tom Kovach says Delaware needs balance in its congressional delegation, which for the first time since 1941 has all three members from the same party.

We'll also be keeping a close eye on the race for County Executive, County Council President and Mayor of Wilmington.
