THE link in the red box is to the website of the New York State Board of Elections where returns will be posted for the Republican primary election being held on 14 September 2010. The results shown at that link should be dynamically updated, so you can stay up-to-date by keeping the race results open in a separate browser tab.
(As we post this, the Board of Elections page for this primary isn’t set up yet. We’ll fix our link later in the day, as necessary. As a fallback, we added a link to the New York Times where they’ll be posting results.)
This is the primary in which New York Republicans will choose their candidate for the US Senate in November. The winner will run against the current office-holder, Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand, who was appointed last year to fill the vacancy left by Hillary Clinton.
The three GOP contenders are: (1) Joe DioGuardi, a former congressman from Westchester County; (2) Bruce Blakeman, a local politician from Long Island; and (3) David Malpass, a former Bear Stearns chief economist.
All three are conservative, but as we posted last month, Blakeman is a flaming ignoramus who says that creationism should be taught in public schools. That’s why we’re watching this election.
Polls open at 6 AM and close at 9 PM. There are no election results available yet, but we wanted to post early so you’d have a place to check for news. When the results are known, we’ll indicate the winner in the red box.
The website of the New York State Board of Elections has a place where all election returns are posted. Go here 2010 Election Results to begin your search if you’re interested in other election contests. (We’ll fix that link if the elections board revises their setup during the day.)
