New Jersey and Virginia are seeing one of the first batches of new women candidates.
The polls haven't closed yet, but women are already gaining political traction in their communities.
In Virginia, more than 50 women are running for state legislative offices. In New Jersey, close to 80 women are running.
According to The Center for Public Integrity, that's the most women candidates in the two states in at least a decade — and many of them are running for the first time.
This surge of women candidates could continue into 2018 and beyond. Since last November, groups dedicated to electing women to public office received a slew of new inquiries. EMILY's List says it heard from more than 20,000 women. She Should Run says it had more than 15,000 inquiries.
The president of EMILY's List told Vox: "We've never seen anything like this. It is a truly transformational moment."
