POUGHKEEPSIE, N. Y. -- Controversy continues over the May 17 election for the Poughkeepsie City School District board seat after one of the losing candidates filed a challenge about how absentee ballots were counted, according to the Poughkeepsie Journal.
Lance Hardy, who ran in a four-way race for the one open board seat, is contending that absentee ballots were used illegally, affecting the overall results. Hardy lost to Randy Johnson by 53 votes, the Poughkeepsie Journal reports.
Meanwhile, a private investigator is questioning whether Hardy lives in the city of Poughkeepsie, as required to to be on the school board, the Poughkeepsie Journal says.
