Razor Thin Margin of Three Votes Leaves DA Race Uncertain

By Max Freebern

It’s too close to call as three votes separate the candidates for the vacant Ulster County District Attorney position until absentee ballots are counted.
The race to replace former Ulster County District Attorney Holley Carnright was decided by three votes, according to Wednesday’s unofficial results. According to the Ulster County Board of Elections, Republican candidate Michael Kavanaugh took the lead from Democrat David Clegg by a count of 24,969 votes to 24,966. However, the winner won’t be cemented until absentee ballots are counted, leaving room for uncertainty.
