The Niagara County Board of Elections will count Lockport-area absentee and write-in ballots on Monday, according to Democrat Election Commissioner Lora Allen.

The board began counting absentee and write-ins today on the other end of the county, she said.

Locally, there is only one race that really stands to be affected by write-ins, that being the Working Families Party primary for Lockport Mayor where Roger Sherrie received seven votes compared to eight write-in ballots cast. If all eight of write-in ballots were for opponent Mike Pillot, who had filed an opportunity to ballot as a write-in candidate on the line, Lockport could see a three-person mayoral race.

Incumbent Mayor Anne McCaffrey will have the Republican, Independence and Conservative lines in November, while Sherrie will have the Democrat line — and possibly the Working Families line.

Pillot had told East Niagara Post going into the primary that if he were to lose the Democratic line — which he did — and win a minor line — which is still unknown — he would bow out of the race, however, calls to Pillot since primary election night have not been returned.
