- CLOSE CONTEST: In the 2018 General Election, the race in Assembly District 77 is the last legislative seat whose outcome remains unclear.

The following day, the lead narrowed again to 4349 votes and a day later to 3718. On November 19th, almost two weeks after the election, Gover closed the gap to 2563 votes behind Maienschein.
