Judge tosses half of the remaining ballots in contested 100th District Assembly race

GOSHEN – State Supreme Court Justice Victor Alfieri has rejected 55 of the remaining 119 contested ballots in the 100th State Assembly District race.  It is the only unresolved state legislature race from the November 2 general election. 

As of this point, former Assemblyman, Republican Thomas Kirwan of Newburgh, is ahead of incumbent Assemblyman Frank Skartados of Milton by 64 votes.

The board of elections will now count the remaining 64 ballots that are going to count in the final vote tally.

This is a rematch of an election two years ago in which Skartados defeated Kirwan.

The 100th District includes portions of Ulster, Dutchess and Orange counties.
