According to the Board of Elections, 144 of the 712 registered Conservatives in Southampton Town cast ballots for the two candidates, former Southampton Supervisor Linda Kabot, who has the the Republican Party backing, and Phil Keith, a US Naval Commander, who has the support of Conservative Party leaders.
The Board of Elections said it is now working to count all the ballots in that race.
