We’ve got the usual suspects still hanging in there, with some fresh faces and history to boot following Election Day in Westchester.

Despite this year’s election day not arriving with as much fanfare as last year’s, there were still civic duties to be done.

Perhaps the largest race of the night was between Democrat incumbent County Executive George Latimer and Republican challenger Christine Sculti. Latimer secured his title for another four years, winning 62% of the vote. This was Sculti’s first time running for the position and, had she won, she would have been the first woman County Executive to grace Westchester.

Every seat on the Board of Legislators was also up for grabs during the election, which resulted in a few races that shook up the county board. Republican James Nolan collected more votes than incumbent Ruth Walter, who is in her first term representing District 15, which encompasses the Village of Bronxville and areas of North, East and West Yonkers. The only other non-Democrat to serve on the board in the past two years was registered Conservative Margaret Cunzio. She easily won reelection, capturing 58% of the vote to beat opponent Dave Vinjumari for her fourth consecutive term for District 3.

Vivian McKenzie declared victory and made history for the City of Peekskill, cementing herself as the first African American woman mayor the city has ever had. Her platform was based on job creation and affordable housing.

Every single state proposal also passed last night following the election, including Proposal 4, which will now authorize no-excuse absentee ballot voting. This means the previous approved reasons one could use to not head to the polls in person (being out of state during election day or disability/illness) will no longer be required to receive an absentee ballot.

Proposal 2 was also passed, which will establish the right of each person to clean air and water and a healthful environment.
