MAMARONECK — Village officials have called an emergency meeting tonight at 5:30 p.m. at The Regatta, 123 Mamaroneck Ave., to discuss how the village Board of Trustees should proceed with its business when election results have not yet been finalized.
The winners of the Nov. 2 election were expected to take their seats Dec. 6. However, the election’s outcome remains up in the air, after GOP state Senate candidate Bob Cohen sued earlier this month to stop the count over reports of troubles with the new electronic voting machines.
Ballot-counting in the contested 37th state Senate district, which encompasses the village, dragged on through the weekend and is likely to continue into this week. If the results aren’t certified soon, the board would have only two of five members and may not be able to conduct business.
