Bieniek still winner of District 5 seat

FONDA – Absentee votes have not affected the outcome of the Montgomery County District 5 legislator race.

After the absentee votes were tallied, Democrat Terry Bieniek still beat Republican Daniel Wilson.

The result was uncertain because absentee ballots still had to be counted after the Nov. 5 election.

On election night, Bieniek was leading Wilson 765 to 756. Bieniek gained 901 absentee votes, while Wilson gained 889.

The unofficial total for each candidate is 1,666 for Bieniek and 1,645 for Wilson.
