Race is not over for Yorktown supervisor

The race for Yorktown supervisor was not decided on Election Day.

At the end of the evening Tuesday, Republican incumbent Linda Cooper, who is seeking her sixth term, was leading by 51 percent of the votes over her Democratic challenger Don Peters? 49 percent. However, the candidates don?t have the results from two districts because poll workers did not pass on the numbers to town hall after sending them to the Board of Elections in White Plains.

In addition, it is not known how many write-in or paper ballots have to be counted. The answer to who will be the Yorktown supervisor may not be known for many days. County Democrats have impounded all of the returns so they cannot be examined yet.
