Recount underway in Yorktown town supervisor race
After being held under lock and key since election night, officials began recounting ballots in the Yorktown town supervisor race Monday.On Election Day, only about 39 percent of the town's registered voters went to the polls. After the polls closed, workers reported that just 217 votes separated incumbent Republican Linda Cooper and Democrat Don Peters from being named town supervisor. Those numbers, however, do not include absentee and other paper ballots that still need to be counted before the race can be certified. Those ballots are expected to be counted later in the week.
