simchafelder[Results below.] We’ve got the results of some key races in Thursday’s New York primaries. Results rolled in after the polls closed at 9 p.m.

Usually elections are held on Tuesdays, but the 2012 state and local primary elections were postponed until Thursday this week, in deference to 9/11.

With all votes counted in Assembly District 45, Assemblyman Dov Hikind received 3,021 votes (84%), while Moshe Tischler garnered 558 votes (15%).

With 97% of the precincts reporting in State Senate District 17, Simcha Felder had 5,676 votes (82%), to while Abraham Tischler got 1,184 votes (17%).

With all votes counted in Assembly District 45, Steve Cymbrowitz had 1,774 voted (53%) , while Ben Akselrod had 1,530 (47% of the) votes.

With 98% reporting, Steven Mostofsky won the Democratic primary for civil court judgeship, beating Charles Finkelstein, who received 18% of the vote. Mostofsky was backed by Councilman David Greenfield; Finkelstein received the support of Assemblyman Dov Hikind.

Williamsburg’s Democratic district leader fight was too close to call thanks in part to Assemblyman Vito Lopez, the embattled party boss who political insiders say got Northern Brooklyn’s Orthodox Jewish communities to come out in droves and vote for Chris Olechowski, the candidate he hand-picked to take out one-term incumbent - and longtime Lopez critic - Lincoln Restler. By midnight, Olechowski was beating Restler by 200 votes, but the incumbent refused to concede, claiming that there were still plenty of absentee ballots to go through. Reports claim that all but 17 percent of Olechowski’s votes came from Williamsburg’s frum community.

In Rockland County, in the 97th Assembly District, Democratic Party-endorsed candidate Monroe’s Myrna Kemnitz went up against Ramapo’s Aron Weider and Gerard McQuade, also of Monroe. McQuade was supported by the frum community members of Kiryas Yoel in Ramapo. With all votes counted, McQuade received 1,477 votes, Kemnitz got 850 votes, and Aron Wieder garnered 709 votes.

In the end, it won’t matter. David Storobin will win
