Absentee-ballot counting begins in 37th state Senate District race
Absentee-ballot counting has begun in the 37th state Senate District between state Sen. Suzi Oppenheimer (D-Mamaroneck) and her Republican challenger, Bob Cohen.
Election officials say there are approximately 3,800 absentee ballots to be counted in a race where Oppenheimer currently leads by only 500 votes.
Lawyers for both sides were on hand to ensure a fair count and challenge any ballots they thought were miscast or problematic.
Election officials say they will be there until all of the counting is done, including staying through Thanksgiving. Experts say that the final results may still take weeks to finalize.
