To the Editor:
As you know, we had some issues with our count Tuesday night. Here is our statement.
It was a tremendous turnout for the Roosevelt Island Residents Association (RIRA) election on Tuesday! The Election committee has released the final counts for the RIRA candidates [see the complete list of Common Council members on page 10].
These results were obtained by hand-count.
We noticed inconsistencies in the totals while scanning the ballots and realized the Scantron scanner was malfunctioning.
We are working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible and to release accurate counts for the remainder of the candidates in the other eight districts as soon as they are available. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Election Committee Co-Chair
