WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – Republican State Senate candidate Bob Cohen said that a motion by Democratic opponent George Latimer to impound voting machines in the 37th district is pre-emptive.

“We had heard it a day ago they were planning to do that. We thought they were jumping the gun in doing that. Clearly they expect the race to be very close, as do we,” Bill O’Reilly, communications director of Cohen’s campaign said Tuesday night. “They have the right to do it; it is their prerogative. It will probably mean we won’t know the winner tonight.”

Latimer said that the motion was made because he thinks it’s important to have all the paper balloted counted in White Plains.

“With all the things that happened in the last election,” Latimer said. “The 2010 District 37 election between Bob Cohen and Suzi Oppenheimer was decided by a close margin.”

Latimer said that he wanted to make sure there are no issues with this year’s results..
