Democrats picked up one seat in the Senate and lost two in the House. All 31 of the incumbent senators running for re-election won. The new Senate, with 20 Democrats, 14 Republicans and one Independent, will be the first in Maine's history to have a female majority in the Democratic caucus. Of 119 incumbent House members running for re-election, 106 were re-elected giving the new House 79 Democrats, 71 Republicans and one Independent. With a selection of election results and other interesting figures.
