UTICA, N.Y. – The race for Utica Common Council president is too close to call, with just over 500 votes separating the two candidates.
With all precincts reporting, Republican incumbent Michael Galime is currently leading with nearly 4,600 votes and Democratic candidate Judy Galimo has just over 4,000.
Until absentee ballots are counted, an official winner cannot be declared.
While at his viewing party at the Fort Schuyler Club in Utica, Galime said the numbers are “as far as I’m concerned, too close to call. However, I’m feeling good.”
There are more than 700 absentee ballots that still need to be counted in this race.
