Special Election Results – Not Final Until May 8 or 9

Aidan for State Assembly

What an incredible election day! I spent the evening surrounded by family and friends while we watched as over 18,000 votes in total were cast! Since the margin is so narrow, this race will be determined by absentee ballots in the coming days and weeks!

From the bottom of my heart, thank you all for your kind words and your friendship! I could not be more proud of our campaign- a campaign focused on inspiration, positivity and solutions to local issues!

To be continued!!!

…….

From the Chair:

As of the machine count at 9:00, Aidan is down by 288 votes. Approximately 2200 absentee ballots were requested and a little over 1200 have been returned. Any absentee ballot that is postmarked no later than 4/23 and arrives by 4/30 is counted.

A date to open absentee ballots in each county will be established after the close of receipt, sometime the first week in May.

A little context: in November of 2016 Trump took this district by 23 points. As of last night Aidan was within 1% of taking this race. That is due to the extraordinary candidate we have in Aidan O’Connor Jr and his appeal to voters of all parties.

Thanks to those of you that pitched in and worked tirelessly with time and ultimately your votes.

To quote Aidan: Stay tuned.

Doreen

…….

John Conklin, director of public information for the state Board of Elections, said 1,324 absentee ballots in the race had been returned as of Monday and another 986 were outstanding. The outstanding ballots could be counted if they are received by May 1.

Absentee ballots will be counted May 1 in Albany and Delaware counties, May 2 in Greene, Otsego and Ulster counties, May 7 in Columbia County, and May 8 in Schoharie County.

NY State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli Endorses Aidan O’Connor Jr. in the 102nd District Special Election – April 24th

NYS Comptroller Tom Dinapoli Endorses Aidan O’Connor Jr. For Assembly
District 102 Special Election

New York State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli has endorsed Aidan O’Connor,
Jr., in his race to represent the 102nd District of the New York State
Assembly at a rally in Athens, New York, on Sunday, March 25, 2018.
The seat will be decided in a Special Election on Tuesday, April 24th.

“I know what it takes to be a good Assemblyman,” said DiNapoli,
“because I represented the 16th District on Long Island for twenty
years before I became Comptroller of New York State in 2007. You need
tremendous energy, love talking with people, be highly ethical and
work with your colleagues to build consensus and find solutions.
Aidan has all those qualities, and more. He knows his district
intimately, has experience in the Greene County Legislature as the
Minority Leader and he’s worked with first responders in every
community as a flight paramedic. He’s clearly the most qualified
candidate for the job and I’m proud to give him my wholehearted
endorsement.”

“I’m deeply honored to receive this endorsement from one of my heroes,
Comptroller Tom DiNapoli” said O’Connor. “For the past decade, he’s
focused on finances in New York and done an extraordinary job of
supporting not only the State government, but County and local
governments, as well as individuals. New Yorkers know Tom is looking
out for their pensions, helping guide local governments off of shaky
fiscal ground and he’s always there to help. That’s why when he ran
for his second term as Comptroller in 2014, Tom was the top
vote-getter in Greene County on the winning statewide ticket! That’s
why he’s my hero and that’s why I’m so proud to receive his
endorsement!”

Important Information about CD19 Candidate Petitions

In order to appear on the primary election ballot, each candidate must first collect a minimum of 1,250 valid signatures. If you want to see a specific candidate’s name appear on the primary ballot, please help them get the signatures.

Helping is easy!  Download the candidate-specific petition below then ask your Democratic friends and neighbors to sign – only registered Democrats are allowed to sign.  Not sure who is a Democrat?  No problem!  Ask the campaign for a list- they have field organizers eager to supply this information (campaign contact info is below).

  • Only registered Democrats can sign petitions for Democratic candidates
  • Each person may sign exactly ONE petition
  • A registered Democrat must “witness” each signature on a specific petition (this is the person who is said to “carry” the petition)
  • You may not sign a petition you are “carrying” – because you can’t witness your own signature
  • You may witness/carry signatures for more than 1 candidate but then you must NOT sign any petition
  • Petitions MUST be signed before April 12th, but the campaigns need them back before that date – contact the campaign to find out when

(See below for CD 19 Candidate Petitions.  Use legal size paper for printing.)
