  New Mormon Congressional Delegation Smaller, More Democratic
Early election returns show that the Mormon delgation in the US Congress is slightly smaller and slightly more Democrat. But the remaining incumbents all won their races, giving the congressional delegation a very familiar face.

  LDS-Supported DOMA Questions Win, Other Issues Fail
The two LDS Church-supported Defense of Marriage questions both passed in yesterday's election results, but other issues widely supported by Mormons did not pass. Both Nebraska's proposition 416 and Nevada's question 2 received 70% of the vote in those states. But another anti-homosexual measure in Oregon appears to have failed, and the fight of conservatives led by LDS Church member Howard Ruff against Hillary Clinton's bid for a New York Senate seat has also failed.

  Mormon Candidate In Nevada Helped By DOMA Turnout
In the Las Vegas, Nevada County Commission race between Lois Tarkanian and Chip Maxfield, the key to Maxfield's victory may be found in the large turnout of conservative voters. The final tally saw the underdog Maxfield pull off a 546-vote on Tuesday.
