ALBANY – For you aging hippies, here are the ballot count numbers in the Senate race for the town of Woodstock in Ulster County.
Woodstock, a longtime art colony made famous by the 1969 concert that actually took place 70 miles south, is a town where many residents might consider the Democratic Party too right wing for their tastes.
Nonetheless, Democrat Cecilia Tkacyzk captured 249 of the 313 absentee and affidavit paper ballots counted yesterday compared to just 64 for Republican George Amedore for the still-raging election contest for the 46th district that will decide which party is in control of the Senate come January. [Republicans challenged 93 ballots from the town and Democrats objected to eight – meaning those will be included in the pile of more than 500 paper ballots a judge will have to decide whether to count or not.]
