Ramapo Board Of Elections To Announce Ward Vote Results

A release by the Office of the Ramapo Town Clerk announced that the votes cast from the September 2014 special town election will be counted by the Board of Elections today. Ramapo residents voted on increasing the number of town council members from four to six as well as deciding to elect members from single districts, or ‘wards’ rather than town-wide. Justice Margaret Garvey’s decision to invalidate the election prevented the votes from being counted, however this was reversed by the second judicial department of the Appellate Division of New York State Supreme Court this past June. The Town Clerk and town employees have reviewed the 653 absentee ballots and the approximately 2,500 affidavit ballots and a thumb drive which holds the results from the voting machines, has been secured at the Board of Elections since the date of the vote. At 10 a.m. this morning, the official tally of the votes will begin and Town Clerk Christian Sampson will announce the results of the election after the final results are presented to him by the Board of Elections.
