Tim Lattimore will keep his District 13 seat representing part of the city of Auburn on the Cayuga County Legislature. The Republican incumbent won by 10 votes against Democrat Bob Nodzo after absentee ballots were unofficially counted Tuesday.
Republican Chris Petrus’s third campaign has also been successful for the District 4 seat. He beat incumbent and independent Grant Kyle by an unofficial 29 votes.
The District 13 race was tight on election night, with the Cayuga County Board of Elections showing Lattimore winning by one vote. The board had issued 67 absentee ballots, of which 35 were to registered Democrats. The board of elections said 21 absentee ballots were handed out to registered Republicans. Not everyone mailed in their ballot.
