Two-vote candidate in Middleburgh protests election
4/5/12 - 2:39 pm
Tom Wargo may not have been elected mayor of Middleburgh last month, but he's pretty sure he got more than two votes.
Wargo, who came in last by a long shot in a three-way race between incumbent Bill Ansel-McCabe and winning challenger Matthew Avitabile on March 20, is challenging the election in an effort to make sure the machines are working properly, the Times-Journal reports:
The best proof he has consists of signed statements from eight residents who said they voted for him, Mr. Wargo said.
"I have to have proof there's something wrong with the machine," he said. "I have those eight, and I suspect there are more. Where did the votes go?"
The paper reports that Schoharie County Judge George Bartlett will weigh in on the issue.
