River Vale NJ, Assemblywoman Holly Schepisi , “Bergen County folks….many of our local races are pretty much all still up for grabs. We won’t know final numbers until next week.
Vote counters in Bergen County had tallied ballots only through Nov. 1 as of election night, with tens of thousands received Monday and Tuesday yet to be tallied, leaving many local races in limbo.
When the first set of unofficial totals for the county were released Tuesday night, about 377,000 ballots had been included, according to the county website. Those numbers reflected only ballots received through Sunday and a small number of Monday ballots, said Jamie Sheehan-Willis, chairwoman of the Bergen County Board of Elections. She said the county had received an estimated 451,000 ballots before Election Day. She expected that number to be much higher when the ballots submitted via drop box on Tuesday were included.”
