Democrats gain seat on Auburn City Council after absentee ballots end race for Lattimore, Otterstatter

The Cayuga County Board of Elections confirmed two victories for Democrats in last Tuesday’s elections after absentee ballots were counted.

A total of 488 ballots were counted by residents who cast absentees ahead of the November 2 election, which meant Timothy Lattimore and Rob Otterstatter were unsuccessful in their bids for Auburn City Council.


Terry Cuddy and Ginny Kent picked up 333 and 319 votes respectively. For Cuddy it was her third four-year term. For Kent, it will be her first.

Cuddy and Kent declared victory on election night. However, Lattimore was just 100 votes shy of the second spot.

Auburn City Council has just one Republican on-board now. Three Democrats running for Cayuga County Legislature in the city also extended their victories.

Town races across Cayuga County are still having absentee ballots counted. Those counts will continue this week.
