The results of the in-person voting for Saugerties Town Judge are in, and so far, Claudia Andreassen has a commanding lead. However, with an increased emphasis on absentee voting, the final results may not be known until early July.
The results from the polls show Andreassen with a total of 617 votes on a total of all five party lines to Stan O’Dell’s 245. When the totals are broken down by party, Andreassen leads on the Democratic line and O’Dell leads on the independent (no party), Working Families, Green Party and Liberal Party lines.
Final totals may not be available until early July, according to published reports, because of the high volume of absentee and mail-in ballots, which must still be counted. Mail-in ballots may not even come in for several days, since their timeliness will be based on when they are postmarked, not when they are received.
