It’s Election Day and HANRadio.com is your place to be for the latest in returns and analysis for the critical state and local races.

After polls close at 8 p.m., tune in to HANRadio.com with your computer, smartphone or tablet to hear the news as it comes in. Rob Adams will anchor the coverage with Josh Fisher and John Kovach providing the analysis as it comes in. Editors throughout the Hersam Acorn chain will be joining the show throughout the night as they are deployed throughout Connecticut to focus on the big races. Additionally check Greenwich-post.com and Twitter.com/greenwichpost for more as Greenwich has several candidates on the ballot.

The big race of the night is the gubernatorial rematch between incumbent Democratic Gov. Dannel Malloy and Republican challenger Tom Foley, whom Mr. Malloy narrowly defeated in 2010 by the slimmest margin in a Connecticut governor’s race ever. Recent polling has given Mr. Malloy a slight edge but race was looking like a dead heat going into Election Day. Post editor Ken Borsuk will be live at Foley Headquarters at the Hyatt Regency in Old Greenwich. Mr. Foley, a town resident, will be sharing space at the hotel with the Greenwich Republican Town Committee, which is hoping for a big night for the grand old party.

In addition to the Malloy/Foley race, there are several other races to watch tonight including another rematch, this time between U.S. Rep. Jim Himes (D-4th) and former state senator Dan Debicella. The two ran against one another in 2010 and Mr. Himes, a Cos Cob resident, won and tonight they face off once more and while Mr. Himes was the face of confidence Tuesday morning as he and his wife Mary voted at Central Middle School, the Debicella camp feels they are primed to pull the upset against the three-term congressman.

Locally, Greenwich voters will see incumbent State Sen. L. Scott Frantz (R-36th) in a race against Green Party challenger Ed Heflin. Mr. Frantz is expected to cruise to victory in that race and State Reps. Livvy Floren (R-149th) and Fred Camillo (R-151st) do not have opponents as they seek new terms. The race to watch in Greenwich is the 150th District for the General Assembly where Republican Mike Bocchino and Democrat Jill Oberlander are running for the seat being vacated by incumbent State Rep. Stephen Walko.

Democrats have not been able to send a representative from Greenwich to Hartford in more than 100 years and they are hoping Ms. Oberlander can break that streak while Republicans hope the voting registration numbers continue to be in their favor as they focused their campaign on Mr. Bocchino’s long record of community service in town.

All the results will be at Greenwich-post.com and Twitter.com/greenwichpost throughout the night.
