On Tuesday 234 voters took Democratic ballots while 203 took the Republican ballot. In the two contested races, incumbent Democratic candidate for County Sheriff James V. DiPaola won (88) defeating Robert A. DeMoura (78) and Brian M. Gillis (24), with 44 blanks. On the Republican side, in the race for Representative in Congress Thomas P. Tierney (91) defeated Ilana Freedman (72), with 40 blanks.
