Top court declines to hear appeal in Malta supervisor race

By Stephen Williams
Tuesday, December 31, 2013

The state's highest court today declined to hear an appeal of the lower court decision that declared Paul Sausville the winner by one vote in the Malta town supervisor election.

The Court of Appeals declined to consider the Appellate Division's decision that two absentee votes for Democratic challenger Cynthia Young were invalid, because the voters had written on the backs of the ballots.

The decision clears the way for Sausville, a Republican, to be sworn into a new term today, and to become chairman of the Saratoga County Board of Supervisors as scheduled on Thursday.
