CAPE ELIZABETH — Town Clerk Debra Lane said Tuesday evening that the results of the Town Council and School Board election will be made available by Wednesday, Nov. 3.
“The state election results will be posted as soon as tonight, but the local race results will be tallied tomorrow,” she said.
Lane said four teams of two workers will count the ballots for the Town Council and School Board race starting at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 3. She said results could be finalized by the afternoon and will be posted to the website.
“There are about 2,000 absentee ballots to go through,” she said. “With the (school board) write-ins, we expect it to take a while.”
The ballots will be packed up and secured in the Town Hall, she said.
There are four candidates running for two council seats. Councilors Penny Jordan will not seek re-election and Frank Governali completed the one-year term he started when Councilor Paul McKinney resigned in 2009. Governali, 55, would like to continue his service for a full three-year term and will compete against Caitlin R. Jordan, 27, of Old Ocean House Road; John W. McGinty, 59, of Brentwood Road; and James R. Wagner, 44, of Hannaford Cove Road.
On the School Board, Kim Monaghan-Derrig is the only name on the ballot for one of two available seats on the School Board. Two residents have come forward to compete in a write-in campaign. Michael Moore, 39, and Frederic K. Sturtevant, 45 will compete for the available seat.
