The days approaching election day are always stressful with candidates getting in last minute campaigns, friends and families trying to urge people to take their side and of course, updating statuses about whom one is going to vote for on social media networks. But there is only so much that one person can do to win that person’s vote and there are some people that may not actually make it to the polls to actually vote. Either way, when the results are in, the political dynamic of the people are impacted in some way. Below are highlights of who won the elections.
Bill de Blasio won the spot for mayor of New York, serving a four year term and is the first democratic to sever the city in almost 20 years.
