SUFFOLK COUNTY, NY — Election Day may be over, but not the counting of the ballots.
According to Nick LaLota, the Republican commissioner for the Suffolk County Board of Elections, there were 140,332 absentee ballots that were received so far. However, the elections board is not expected to start counting those votes until Monday.
LaLota said before the votes can be counted, the board has to remove the absentee ballots of those voters who also cast a ballot on a machine and compare the signatures. In addition, the bipartisan teams must compare the signatures on absentee ballot envelopes to voters’ signatures on file.
In Suffolk County, 211,763 absentee ballots were requested for the election and 209,986 were sent in. Democrats requested 98,174 ballots and sent in 97,353, while Republicans requested 49,549 absentee ballots and sent in 49,102. A total of 655 ballots have been canceled and 1,366 were inactive. So far, there are still 67,633 ballots outstanding.
