Election Results 2017

From Donna Conkling, our Town Clerk's notes:

Absentee ballots: 176

Total ballots cast: 2,854+176=3,030  - A far cry from the 718 cast last election.

As you can see from the above, it is the most number of votes cast that counts, per our Town Clerk.

So, if Kirkendall-Rodriguez had gotten more votes than Callaghan's 1996 for example, then he would have won a seat as Trustee. Even though we are told to vote by the slate, I learned we don't have to and many don't.

People vote for one and not the others, etc., etc. Still a lot of confusion, murky waters around elections...

But you had to vote for one Mayor. But it looks like there were some who did not. 3,030 votes cast, but if you add up totals for Berg and Hochvert that is 3,011. So, 19 did not vote for one or the other as Mayor...
