For a mid term election, Cavendish set records with its turnout (584 voters) as well as the high number of absentee ballots filed-103 were requested with 86 returned. Since the mail for Nov. 6 had not been checked at the writing of this post, it is possible that additional absentee ballots were received, thereby slightly changing counts. However, there would be insufficient votes to change final outcomes.
With about half of registered Cavendish voters voting, 25 people registered to vote between Oct. 5 and Nov. 6, with an additional nine registering and voting on Nov. 6.
Below are the results for Cavendish, with the overall winners noted in bold. Cavendish voted in agreement with the majority of the state with the exception of State Senate where Randy Gray beat Dick McCormick by two votes. However, McCormick was ultimately elected for Windsor County.
