NEW CASTLE, N.Y. - Town supervisor candidate Bob Kirkwood (R,I) said he "would be shocked" if the yet-to-be calculated absentee ballots are enough to make up the difference between him and his opponent, Susan Carpenter (D).
According to unofficial results released by the Westchester County Board of Elections on Thursday, Carpenter edged out Kirkwood by 140 votes.
"We'll try to get some sort of idea what the absentee ballots are, but I suspect that there are not many out there," said Kirkwood. "It would be very unusual to see so many out there for a local race."
Kirkwood said that during the campaign both Democratic and Republican parties requested 250 absentee ballots but does not know how many were used.
