MURRAY – The winner of the election for Murray town supervisor should be finally determined on Wednesday morning when absentee ballots are counted.

Joe Sidonio holds a 16-vote lead over Bob Miller, 558-542. So far 70 absentee ballots have come in to the Board of Elections office in Albion.

If there are 70 valid absentees on Wednesday, Miller would need 44 to win.

Sidonio had a 7-vote lead after the Republican Primary in September, but Miller got 19 absentees to Sidonio’s 5, giving Miller the Republican line in the Nov. 7 election. Sidonio had a rematch with backing from the Conservative and Independence parties.

The absentees will be opened on Wednesday at 9 a.m. at the Board of Elections.
