Your Election Day Predictions; Let’s Hear Them

Join our open blog and tell us who wins these county and town elections in November.

We’d love to hear your predictions for who’s going to win some open seats and town and county government on Nov. 5.

The Suffolk County Legislature posts some strong races, with Jay Schneiderman getting a strong challenge from Christopher Nuzzi in the 2nd District. William J. Lindsay battles to keep his father’s former seat against challenger Anthony Musumeci.

In East Hampton council races will come down to who gets the top two votes between Kathee Burke Gonzalez, Frederick L. Overton Jr., Job Potter and Dominick J. Stanzione. There are two open seats in the race. 

Our new open blog, The Soapbox hopes to be the place where locals can debate these kids of issues in town.

    Ed. Note: Yesterday we erroneously printed that East Hampton Town Council candidates were running head-to-head against incumbents. In fact, with two open seats, the top two vote-getters will win the open seats in the general election. We regret the error.

TERRIBlLE misinformation in this article! Council candidates do NOT run "head-to-head". Job Potter is NOT running against Dominic Stanzione! It is " the top two out of four" Town Council candidates who will win. You need to print a correction and double check your election facts with the Suffolk County Board of Elections in the future. Thanks.
