GOP asks to subpoena records of Taghkanic voters’ lives
HUDSON–If you live in the Town of Taghkanic, perhaps you are wondering who your town leaders will be. Five elected positions there have remained undecided since the November 3 election as lawyers argue over more than 80 absentee ballots. After two more days spent in court hearings there is good news and bad.
At a court hearing held Tuesday, December 8, at the Hudson Elks Lodge, nine contested votes received scrutiny and were approved by Judge Jonathan Nichols, who is hearing the case. The ballots were taken back to the county Board of Elections, where they were counted, resulting in Elizabeth Young, longtime town supervisor of Taghkanic, securing another term. But the new vote counts were not enough to resolve the other four races for town justice, highway superintendent, and two town council posts.
