Outcome Of Croton Primary Uncertain

The unofficial tallies from Croton's Democratic Committee and the Westchester Board of Elections do not match up.

The outcome of last night's Democratic primary, to decide who Croton-on-Hudson's next two Board of Trustees members are, is uncertain. The unofficial tallies from Croton Democratic Committee Chair John McBride and the Westchester Board of Elections do not match up. Here's the breakdown.

BOARD OF ELECTIONS (All districts reporting)

  • • Levitt 503
  • • Davis 501
  • • Gallelli 468

CROTON DEMOCRATIC COMMITTEE (All districts reporting)

  • • Levitt 413
  • • Davis 501
  • • Gallelli 470

Here's what McBride had to say about last night's discrepancy.

"We have far fewer votes with all eight districts reporting. Whether we made a mistake, or they (the Board of Elections) made a mistake—somebody made a mistake or both made a mistake. I don't know. I just don't feel like I have reliable numbers," said McBride.

McBride says that the discrepancy may have occurred by inadvertently combining the numbers from a couple of the districts.

"There are two districts that they may have lumped them together—they may not have. And so that's our concern. That's what I’m being told," said McBride.

As an election inspector, I would trust the Board of Elections over the Democratic Committee. We call in results at the end of the night, specifically noting which districts we are reporting from. I don't trust the committee. Galelli does not want to lose, and she'll say anything to keep her seat.

I also agree that Galelli doesn't want to give up. She will do the imposible to stay on the board. Even lie! .
