Special elections: some slow results from Nassau

Make what you will of this:

In the special election Tuesday in the 3rd AD, Suffolk County reported 100 percent of its election results on its Web site by 9:35 p.m.

Republican L. Dean Murray edged out Democrat Lauren Thoden in unofficial results.

In the special election in the 15th AD, the Nassau County Board of Election had nothing — zero — at that point, and did not post any results until 10:02 p.m., when it had Republican Michael Montesano with a wide lead over Democrat Matt Meng, but only 25 percent of precincts reporting.

But the lead held up and Montesano won easily. (Nassau had 106 of 109 EDs by 10:20 p.m. and we’re going home to beat the snow.)
