The Chenango County Board of Elections finished entering memory cards, or smart cards, from the polls at 11 p.m. While it wasnít a good turnout locally, Republican Commissioner Harriet Jenkins said, Hanna unofficially received 54 percent of the vote to Kicinskiís 45.5 percent. There were two write-ins.
