Counting of paper ballots in the Nassau County executive race was scheduled to resume Monday in a truncated holiday week.
Democratic County Executive Thomas Suozzi was trailing Republican challenger Edward Mangano by 353 votes after the counting teams finished a short Saturday of work at Board of Elections offices in Mineola.
Attorneys for the board and the Democratic and Republican candidates were scheduled to go to state Supreme Court, just a block from the counting room, to inform Justice Edward McCarty of their progress. The judge has oversight of the election results, but has given no indication yet of taking any role in the counting.
The schedule calls for counting Monday and Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 6:45 p.m., and on Wednesday, Thanksgiving Eve, from 9 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. The teams are then to return to work at 9 a.m. Nov. 30.
