Incumbent Town Councilwoman Alice Tunison got 192 write-in votes in Cairo, in a losing effort to retain her seat. Tunison publicly stated she was not going to run until the very last minute, when she asked the local Democrats for their endorsement. They said it was too late, so she tried a write-in campaign....In the Claverack contest for Supervisor, where Robin Andrews leads incumbent James Keegan by seven votes, there are 182 issued absentee ballots, 147 of which have already reached the Board of Elections....Both the Columbia and Greene County boards of election must receive civilian absentee ballots postmarked by Nov. 2 by Nov. 10, and military ballots postmarked by Nov. 2 by Nov. 16. Full vote totals should be announced that week, and must be certified by Nov. 23.
