Detailed results[edit]

Vote share of each candidate by main party per district.[1] Candidates can run on multiple parties in New York; the shading is the sum of votes a candidate received for all parties, although only the main party is used for shading. Although Fred Thiele of the 1st district is mainly associated with the Independence Party, he received most of his votes as a Democrat[1] and is thus noted here.
