As far as I know, Paul Meli hasn't conceded. Why are you reporting that Ralph won? I was told that another council seat is too close to call and that Meli trails Suozzi by about 100 votes. Whay is this race being called by Patch?

Hi Vinny. You are absolutely right. Paul Meli has not conceded, and the absentees still need to be counted. The sixth council seat is also close, as well as the race for county legislator. We reported Ralph Suozzi's win because we wanted to be as direct as possible with our reporting. However, we are prepared to release game-changing updates at a moment's notice. I've also mentioned in my other article that the results are "unofficial," so although it appears Suozzi has won, the final count has yet to be determined.

Thank you Elena, for your response. However, I still disagree with the wording of your statement because it's isn't accurate at this point in time. You're a reporter in this case and your words have significance. Maybe something like this would have been more informative...while Mayor Suozzi holds a slight lead,.the Mayoral race is still too close to call because absentee ballots need to be counted and voting machines have been impounded at the request of the Bd. of Elections, which makes this situation fluid...or something along those lines. Patch is becoming a significant news forum in this town and I'd like to see it maintain a high level of journalistic integrity. Many tell me they read Patch before any newspaper.

I completely undertstand and agree with you. Unlike newspapers, we have the ability to change at a moment's notice. A few have metioned some confusion over the election results, and we apologize. We did not mean to mislead; we are just reporting on the current standings. But I assure you, we are staying on top of this and will be sure to update. Thank you for your kind words! It is truly appreciated.

Poster Gary B said in a comment on another article: "Gary B 11:48pm on Wednesday, November 9, 2011 Ive done my math. Of the 275 absentee ballots for mayor, Meli needs 72% or 197 of the 275 ballots to win. Germino only needs 43% or 243 of the 522 absentee ballots to win" He is correct and with the majority of those 275 ballots purportedly being filled out by democrats, I'm not certain if Mr. Meli will be able to obtain 197 of those votes.

I say to you what I say to everyone else who has been FALSELY SPREADING THIS INFORMATION: SHOW ME THE CONTRACT! You can't because it DOESN'T EXIST.

Being identified as a Democrat doesn't automatically mean he voted that way.I don't think we predict that all Democrat absentee ballots will go to Ralph.
