BATH — With Republican ballot lines for offices in Hartsville, Cohocton and Dansville still too close to call following primary voting last week, Steuben County Board of Elections officials huddled throughout the day Wednesday counting absentee ballots.
At the close of business Wednesday, elections officials were apparently near the completion of the absentee vote tally, but no updated results were posted to the board’s website by Wednesday night. An employee who answered the phone at the Board of Elections in Bath said the counts would be completed Thursday and the absentee votes added to the totals on the website.
In the Dansville Republican primary for the town board, Shelly Stauring and Theodore Robbins were the winners.
In the Republican primary for Surrogate Court judge, elections officials had 383 absentee ballots to count. Patrick McAllister led Chauncey J. Watches 2,765-2,509 on primary night, a 256-vote margin.
Updates will be published as the information is released.
