Harrison Town Council candidates still awaiting results of the re-count

It's been almost a week since Election Day, and there are still no winners in the Harrison Town Council race.

Immediately after the polls closed on Election Day, the voting machines were impounded and placed under guard at the municipal garage on Gleason Place. All of the votes are now in the process of being re-counted.

There are two town council seats up for grabs. The candidates vying for those seats are Republicans Anthony DiFiore and Mark Renaldi, and incumbent Democrats Robert Paladino and Patrick Vetere. There are only about a dozen votes separating the candidates.

The next step in the re-count process will be to count all of the absentee and affidavit ballots, which is expected to happen on Thursday. Then on Friday, the write-in ballots will be counted.

The county has until December 5 to count the votes so that the election can be certified by the state by December 15.
