Races for Sayreville mayor and two of the town’s council seats won’t be called until after provisional ballots are counted next week.
Councilman Arthur Rittenhouse, the Republican candidate for Mayor, received 3,578 votes, just 33 more than Democratic Councilwoman Victoria Kilpatrick.
The 96 provisional ballots cast in Sayreville are enough to close that gap, and they could change results in the town’s council races.
There, Republican Donna Roberts leads Democrat Michele Cassidy by four votes, 3549-3545.
While it’s unlikely, Democrat David McGill may end up with a council seat. His 3,480 votes put him 69 behind Roberts.
Roberts’ running mate, Christian Hibinski’s 3,412 aren’t enough to remain in the running.
Provisional ballots won’t be counted until next week, and the county clerk will continue to accept mail-in ballots postmarked by election day through Thursday.
