New York Election contest: Maribel Toure v. Betty Cross 2014-05 Hempstead school board 2015-06 Absentee/mail Voter intimidation/coercion The Hempstead school district was ordered to hold a new election for a contested seat held by incumbent board president Betty Cross and challenged by Maribel Toure, NY State Education Commissioner John B. King Jr. ruled after annulling that portion of the May 20, 2015 election. Challenger Touré accused Cross and her supporters of “fraudulent and improper activity” during the election, including “voter intimidation and voter fraud,” coercion and abuse of the absentee balloting process. Roger Tilles, who represented Long Island on the Board of Regents, said King had to throw out results for the contested seat because it was impossible to determine which of the absentee ballots cast for Cross and Touré were valid. Touré had 712 votes on election night, compared with Cross' 691. The next day, dozens of contested absentee ballots were included in the totals, putting Cross ahead by six votes, beating Touré 719 to 713.
