Some updated election figures are available Wednesday morning, but as some races include write-ins, the final results won’t be known until the names are read and counted.
According to the latest unofficial results, Christopher Eachus received 58 votes in the Working Families Party primary for the 39th state Senate seat, which is now held by Republican William Larkin. There were 20 votes cast for write-in candidates. In a Women’s Equality Party primary for the same seat, three write-in votes were cast.
In a Democratic primary for the 42nd state Senate seat now held by Republican John Bonacic, 2,782 write-in votes were cast. Democrat Pramilla Malick was mounting a write-in campaign to challenge Bonacic, who appealed to Democrats to write in his name.
There were seven primaries for the 98th state Assembly seat now held by Republican Karl Brabenec. In the Republican primary, unofficial votes show Brabenec leading John Allegro 2,652 votes to 1,950. There were 44 write-in votes cast.

In the Conservative primary, Brabenec received 140 votes, but there were 281 write-in votes cast, according to unofficial results. In the Green Party primary, 56 write-in votes were cast.

In the Reform Party primary, Brabenec received two votes, while six were cast for write-in candidates.
In the 101st Assembly district, which incumbent Republican Claudia Tenney is vacating to run for Congress, there has been no change from Tuesday night figures in the Republican primary. Brian Miller has 1,672 votes, to Maria Kelso's 1,376. Kelso received a single write-in vote in the Reform Party primary.
