Nine Votes Separate Carvin from Opponent

Rye Town's supervisor was challenged for the Conservative Party nomination by Rico dos Anjos, a Port Chester martial arts instructor and retired IBM exec.

A nine-vote margin is like a one-run baseball lead—if you're on the winning side, you'd like to pad it out with some insurance.

But in the bid to earn the Rye Conservative Party's nomination for town supervisor, nine votes might be a sizable lead.

Amid anecdotal reports of and county-wide that haven't cracked four digits, a total of 135 votes had been counted for the Conservative primary nod.

With 90 percent of precincts reporting as of early Wednesday morning, challenger Ricardo dos Anjos of Port Chester may make it a race. Surmounting a nine-vote lead is not a mathematic impossibility, and dos Anjos could benefit if the three remaining districts are in downtown Port Chester, where he's a familiar face as a long-time karate instructor.

Carvin had 72 votes to 63 for dos Anjos, according to the latest tally. Check back for updates.

George, I agree re the voter fraud in PC elections. Valid ID should be required to establish your identity before you cast your vote. I wonder if this is something that could be implemented by Westchester Board of Elections or does it take NYS to enact?

The fact that you need no identification AT ALL to vote is an absolute travesty. You cannot cash a check, adopt a hound or get a credit card at a department store without ID ... but anyone can float into a voting center and dive right in. This is dumb. Real dumb.

Why is the news reporting on Carvin's hedge fund which may be dispossessing poor foreign communities because of "land grabs" to make profits for fund investors? Aren't we in this economic mess because of these "hedge fund" operators? Is this Carvin's filscal experience?

Like Lowey, Carvin supports assault rifle ban -- and confuses 2nd Amendment with a "right to hunt." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvGlY8DhNow

Private investors are not turning to agriculture to solve world hunger or eliminate rural poverty. They want profit, pure and simple. In many cases, the goal is to generate revenue streams both from the harvests and from the land itself, whose value they expect to go up. It is a totally corporate version of the Green Revolution, and their ambitions are big. "My boss wants to create the first Exxon Mobil of the farming sector," said Joseph Carvin of Altima Partners' One World Agriculture Fund to a gathering of global farmland investors in New York in June 2009. http://www.eurasiacritic.com/articles/worlwide-corporate-control-agriculture-new-farm-owners
