In the recent special election for Geneva’s Ward 6 City Council seat, Republican Tom Moracco has taken a lead over Democrat Michael Salotto, with unofficial results showing an 84-69 margin.

The Ontario County Board of Elections is yet to finalize these results as additional votes are still being counted, including affidavit and absentee ballots.

The election commissioner mentioned the possibility of a hand recount if the final vote margin is within 20 votes. This special election was called following a tie in the previous November election, leading to a vacancy on the City Council since January.

Moracco and Salotto, both new to the political scene, were competing to fill this seat, which has seen significant turnover since the death of longtime councilor John Greco in 2019.
