A four-person race for a judge seat in Tompkins County appears to have been won by Joe Cassidy.
Cassidy received nearly 40 percent of the vote in Tuesday’s Democratic primary, collecting over 300 votes more than Pamela Bleiwas. Candidate Seth Peacock finished third, with Kelly Damm coming in fourth.
It’s a much closer race in Cortland, where Elizabeth Burns currently holds a 36-vote lead over Ronald Walsh Junior in the Democratic primary for a 10-year city judge seat. Candidate Mike Shaffer is 40 votes behind Walsh.
A primary in Tompkins County’s second legislative district is 13 votes apart. Incumbent Kathy Luz Herrera collected 162 votes on Tuesday, compared to challenger Patty Sipman’s 149 votes.
All results are unofficial at this point in both counties.
