2022 Write-Ins Still Unknown from 10 Counties

Last month, I presented a table of the election results that have been received so far. Election Day was three months ago, and we still don’t have the total number of write-in votes received by our candidates, including Larry Sharpe.

While 52 counties have provided results, we are still missing data from 10 counties (Broome, Columbia, Dutchess, Erie, Nassau, Orange, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Suffolk, and Wyoming Counties). I will continue to follow-up with these Board of Elections in order to get the complete results for our candidates.

A couple of the counties have told me that I can inspect the ballots in person, which presents a problem for distance to these Boards of Elections. Three counties have outright denied providing the information, although two of the counties have since assured me that the information can be obtained. Many of the other counties have not even provided the information, as I have continued to play email and phone tag with them, as they continue to say they will get back to me.

This is just another example of government bureaucrats not doing their job. At the very least, several counties have provided the information I have requested, some going above and beyond what is required of them. However, there should be a consistent response among Boards of Elections as they follow the same rules.
