Staten Island Results: Not Bad for a Write-In

The final, official results of an delightfully confusing special City Council election on Staten Island between Republican Lou Tobacco, Conservative-Democratic-Independence candidate John Mulia and a write-in candidate named Todd Tabacco are in.

A reader who follows such things closely sent in the following analysis:

Out of 3,839 votes cast, Todd A. Tabacco got 383 write-in votes plus there were 33 write-ins for Todd Tobacco, plus 1 for Todd Tobacco Laro & 1 for Todd Tabad. So his campaign got him 10.88%

Republican Louis Tobacco won with 2,409 votes or 62.75% and Democrat-Independence-Conservative John Mulia got 1,008 or 26.26%
