On November 8, New York held local partisan elections. In Shelter Island, a town in eastern Long Island, a Conservative Party nominee who was not the nominee of either major party was elected to the town council. Paul D. Shepard, the Conservative Party nominee, polled 585 votes. Voters were electing two council members and were invited to vote for two nominees. The other seat was won by a Republican who had the Conservative cross-nomination. That person got 709 votes. The Republican who didn’t have the Conservative Party’s cross-nomination got 543 votes; the two Democrats got, respectively, 545 votes and 476 votes. Thanks to Kevin Reilly for this news.
