The presidential race isn't the only big election going on in New York City Tuesday.

There are several contested races for seats in the state Legislature, Congress and one in the city Council. Here are some of the most watched contests.

U.S. Senate:

Kirsten Gillibrand will be facing off against Republican Wendy Long in her re-election bid.

House of Representatives:

Rep. Mike Grimm faces a challenge from Democrat Mark Murphy for the seat that represents most of Staten Island.
State Senate:

Sen. Joseph Addabbo (D), who has the backing of Go. Andrew Cuomo, will face off against City Councilman Eric Ulrich (R) for the seat that covers most of Howard Beach, Richmond Hill and other central Queens areas.

State Assembly:

Despite being censured by the Assembly's ethics committee, Vito Lopez is fighting for his seat of 27 years against Republican Richy Garcia.

City Council
Following Larry Seabrook's July conviction money laundering and other charges, five candidates are running on independent lines in a special election to fill his Bronx seat.
