Blair to Review Absentees, Write-Ins on Friday

Blair County’s Elections Board will meet Friday to begin counting absentee ballots and to review write-in votes from Tuesday’s May primary.
Officials say the county received a total of 370 absentee ballots. The absentee ballots could become crucial in some races, where just a few votes separated one candidate from the other. The closest vote occurred in the race for Greenfield Township Supervisor. Just one vote separated the candidates.
Wilson Saguban, candidate for Altoona City Council and Donna Cohen, candidate for Jury Commissioner, both ran write-in campaigns. The county’s elections office says the election won’t be certified until May 28th. That’s because the county issued one military ballot and that’s the deadline for that ballot to be submitted.
