Ballot counting begins in tight 37th state Senate District race
The counting of emergency ballots is finally under way in a tight state Senate race between Democratic incumbent Suzi Oppenheimer and Republican challenger Bob Cohen.
Lawyers for both candidates are watching closely as the ballots are counted at the Board of Elections warehouse in Ardsley.
The balance of power in the state Senate is also at stake in this race. As of now, the Republican Party controls the state Senate by one seat.
Election officials will be counting the ballots through the weekend. Once the emergency ballots are counted, the absentee ballots will then be counted.
