College Park & Takoma Park Elections Too Close to Call // Partial Results

In College Park, the Patch reports unofficial election results that leave at least one City Council seat's fate unknown tonight. Mayor Andy Fellows and Council candidates Marcus Afzali (D4), Robert Catlin (D2), Robert Day (D3), Monroe Dennis (D2), Denise Mitchell (D4), and Stephanie Stullich (D3) won election (according to unofficial results).

Notably, College Park councilmembers serve in 2-member districts. In District 1, there are more outstanding absentee and provisional ballots than the current margin separating the 2nd and 3rd place candidates:
District 1 (32 absentee ballots left to count.)
Patrick Wojahn, 324 votes *
Christine Nagle, 296 votes *
Fazlul Kabir, 287 votes

We'll have to wait to see the final outcome in this race. Meanwhile, voters in Takoma Park will also have to wait to see the final results of their city races. The Takoma Park Patch reports the following information from the three contested City Council races (from Districts 2, 3 and 6). The current leaders are highlighted:
Though the numbers are in, they are unofficial. The Takoma Park City Council will certify the votes in a short meeting Wednesday night.

“There are enough provisional ballots in one ward to change the results,” Election Judge Anne Sergeant said. Sergeant would not disclose which race is still dependent on those provisional ballots. One race was won by 21 votes and those provisional ballots could change that outcome.

In Ward 2, a closely contested race between Tim Male and Lorig Charkoudian, Male is on top with 344 votes.

In Ward 3, Kay Daniels-Cohen is beating Jeffrey Noel-Nosbaum and Mike Graul with 322 votes....

In Ward 6, with the Takoma Langley Sector Plan the most important issue to most voters, Fred Schultz is on top with 129 votes.

We'll have to wait for final results in the Takoma Park races, too!
