After counting Hoboken's vote by mail ballots, the three Kids First school board candidates — Tom Kluepfel, Jean Marie Mitchell and Ruth McAllister — continue to hold a lead over Anthony Oland, Liz Markevitch and Felice Vazquez, their Move Forward adversaries.
Hudson County Board of Elections clerk Michael Harper released the new numbers on Tuesday.
The lead, however, is small in some cases. Mitchell, for example, holds only a 6-vote lead over Markevitch.
Including the vote by mail ballots, these are the new tallies:
Kleupfel: 3,979 votes; McAllister: 3,972 votes; Mitchell: 3,817 votes.
On election day, Kluepfel earned a total of 3,426 votes, Mitchell received 3,223 votes and McAllister took 3,498 votes.
The new Move Forward vote count is:
Markevitch: 3,811; Oland: 3,345; Vazquez: 3,328.
On election day, Oland received a total of 2512 votes, Markevitch got 2844 votes and Vazquez got 2488 votes. Independent Patricia Waiters got a total of 987 votes. Waiters' vote count went up to 1,185 after the vote by mail ballots were counted.
Provisional votes have not yet been included in these tallies, said Harper.
