State Rep. Tram Nguyen (D-Andover) and state Sen. Barry Finegold (D-Andover) warded off Republican challengers to claim reelection to the state legislature in Tuesday’s election.

“You have made your voices heard that you value building and welcoming and inclusive community for all,” Nguyen said in a Facebook post Tuesday night. “I’m so excited to have this opportunity to continue to work with you and to serve you for the next two years.”

With 100 percent of ballots counted, Nguyen had 60.2 percent of the vote to Republican Jeffrey Dufour’s 39.8 percent. Meanwhile, Finegold had 56.7 percent of the votes in his race against Salvatore DeFranco (R-Haverhill), who had 45.7 percent with 100 percent reporting.

According to the Town Clerk’s office, 6,407 people voted in-person on Tuesday, while 1,045 cast ballots in person during early voting. The remaining 6,407 ballots were cast by mail.
