Thursday 11:50 PM: With 99% precincts reported, McQuade won the electionaries with 48% – 1477 votes, Kemnitz got 850 votes – 27%, Wieder got 709 votes – 23%.
Thursday 10:51 PM: That ‘one source’ is good after all! KJ had 1,000 Dems voting today and another 124 on the Conservative line, according to a key source. Sorry ‘One Source. You never disappoint. Your info on local, state and national issues, always turnout to be righ’on!
Thursday 10:44 PM: Ya, KJ votes on the Dem line including Absentee is in the 1,050 area. As I wrote earlier, the above 1,100 vote was only from one source.
Thursday 10:00 PM: If Wieder takes 80% of the 600-plus votes in the second voting location in Monsey, his total in Monsey on the Dem Line will stand above 780. Both sides in KJ backed McQuade. So baring some major surpirse out of KJ, I don’t see how Wieder wins this.
Thursday 9:50 Wieder won 265 votes and lost 225 votes in one of the two polling areas in Monsey. This race is over. 520 voted in this polling area while less than 700 voted in the other polling area in the Monsey section of AD98. So… if Mr. Wieder lost half of one location in his home base, it is impossible for him to come out on tap when more than 950 Hasidim in Orange County turned out and probably almost all of them voted for McQuade.
Thursday 9:30 PM: McQuade apparently won the Democratic race. Turn out in the “Non-Jewish” areas were very, very, very low. KJ produced more than 950 votes (more than 1,100 according to one source). Most of them backed McQuade. In Monsey however, less than 1,200 voted, and a number them voted against Mr. Wieder. BUT… Let’s see how many in KJ went for Wieder and how it results on the race.
Thursday 9:20 PM: More than 950 Hasidim voted in Orange County.
Thursday 9:15 PM: Less than 1,200 Hasidim appear to have voted in Monsey. Some of them voted for McQuade.
Thursday 9:00 PM: The call center in Hasidic Monsey has only 1/3 than the regular car requests. However it is tough to know what it means because while this is Aron Wieder’s base, there were key Hasidic sects that didn’t back him, and one backed only McQuade.
Thursday 8:51 PM: It appears that a larger percent of Hasidim in Orange County came out to vote than the Hasidim in Rockland County. However, there is a substantial larger number RH in Monsey than in Kiryas Joel.
