Vote counting continues in 37th state Senate District race

Almost three weeks after Election Day, votes are still being counted in the 37th state Senate District race between state Sen. Suzi Oppenheimer (D-Mamaroneck) and her Republican challenger, Bob Cohen.

More than 3,000 emergency ballots were counted recently, narrowing Oppenheimer?s lead over Cohen from 620 votes to 500 votes.

Lawyers for both sides are expected to appear before a judge tomorrow to allow election officials to begin counting absentee ballots.
