Paper Ballots Could Decide DA Races In Dutchess & Ulster Counties


(Poughkeepsie, NY) -- The voting is over however the counting of ballots will probably continue for a couple of weeks in the District Attorney races in Dutchess and Ulster counties.

In Dutchess longtime incumbent Republican District Attorney Bill Grady leads his Democratic Challenger Richard Berube by about 800 votes. That means that paper ballots will need to be counted before the results are certified.

In Ulster, things are even tighter as Republican Mike Kavanagh leads Democrat Dave Clegg by just three votes. There are several other races where paper ballots could make the difference including a Poughkeepsie Common Council race, the Town of Poughhkeepsie Supervisor's race and a couple of races for the Dutchess County Legislature.
