The Board of Election Supervisors received a letter from Nicholas D’Angelo, Candidate for the Ward 2 Council Member seat in the election that was held on May 1, 2017. The letter indicated that Mr. D’Angelo was not contesting the outcome of the election, he was requesting a review of the process by which the election results were certified, specific to the absentee ballot process.
The Chair of the Board of Election Supervisors contacted the Town Attorney to discuss the matter. It was determined, after that discussion as well as a conversation between Mr. D’Angelo and the Town Attorney, that the following items would be provided to Mr. D’Angelo:
耀 A certified copy of the election results, signed by the Board of Election Supervisors and the Election Judges present on Election Day. This certification denotes the total number of ballots cast in person on Election Day, the number of Absentee Ballots received, and the number of Emergency Card votes cast. It also gives the final vote numbers for all Ward elections.
耀 A copy of the list of registered voters in the Town of Cheverly. This document was the roll used by the Board of Election Supervisors in approving or disapproving applications for Absentee Ballots.
耀 The Absentee Ballot Register. This document contains information on when the application was received by the Town of Cheverly, the action taken by the Board (either approval or disapproval), when the ballot package was mailed to the voter, and an annotation indicating if the ballot was returned.
