Election Results: Westchester Wide and a Mock Vote at Scarsdale Middle School

stewartcousinsThough Democrats in the national election did not score the resounding victory they hoped for, in New York the Dems had everything to celebrate. From the top of the ballot down, Democrats won big in every race.

Most exciting for Scarsdale is that our State Senator, Andrea Stewart Cousins is poised to become the majority leader of the NY State Senate which has flipped to the Democrats after decades of Republican control. She will make history as the first woman and the first African-American woman to serve in that role.

Here are the results from the Westchester County Board of elections:VoteLine

Governor Cuomo/Lieutenant Governor Hochul  67%
Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli                            70%
Attorney General Letitia James                          68%

Mock Election at Scarsdale Middle School

On Monday November 5, the League of Women Voters and the Scarsdale Middle School Social Studies Department staged a mock election for the students. The League assisted the SMS Social Studies teachers in developing an election ballot based on the middle school street address. All students went to the Great Hall during their Social Studies class period to vote electronically. League volunteers “checked in” students based on their house and homeroom. After students confirmed their names they received an “I Voted Today” sticker and went to the actual polling booth where they logged onto a laptop to access the Google doc ballot and cast their vote.

Here are the results as reported by the Scarsdale Middle School:

Governor Andrew Cuomo                 57.5%
Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli           62.2%
Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul  53.5%

Senator Andrea Stewart Cousins     100%
