Ballot counting still underway in Sussex County Council District 3 Race

Sussex County Council District 3 Race

SUSSEX COUNTY, Del. – Ballot counting is still underway for Sussex County Council District 3. The only candidate on the ballot is republican former Smyrna Mayor Mark Schaeffer.
But write in candidate Patti Drago has garnered a good amount of support.

Sussex County board of Elections director Bo McDowell says that over the course of the day, they’ll be busy double checking the write in votes for Drago. That way they can make sure that the votes came from voters registered in district three.

McDowell says that there are about 54,000 registered voters in the district. Right now Schaeffer has about 16,000 votes. So right now there’s no way to tell who might win this race.
