The Herkimer County Board of Elections has posted the unofficial results of the November 5, 2019 election.

In Ward Three, there were three candidates vying for two open seats. Nick Regan had decided to not run again, while Democrat Mark Ruffing was seeking re-election. Democrat Brian Marhaver and Republican Roger Stock were both seeking to fill one of those two-year seats. The results currently show that Ruffing retained his seat, while Democrat Brian Marhaver had enough votes to fill the open seat over challenger Roger Stock.

In Ward Four, two incumbents were facing a challenge from a Republican candidate. Pater Atutis Jr. and Daniel Carter, both Democrats, were challenged by David Carpineti. Unofficial results show that Republican Carpineti garnered more votes than either Democrat candidate, while Atutis and Carter are both tied with 56 votes each.

In the meantime, Main Street First held their annual Election Night Dinner at the Elks club, where for $12 you could get a great meal.
