SOUTHAMPTON - Incumbent Southampton Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst declared victory tonight even though write-in ballots have yet to be counted.

The write-in challenge from former Supervisor Linda Kabot, who was not listed on the ballot, could hold up official results in the race. However, Throne-Holst claimed victory and thanked voters for their support.

Throne-Holst has held the town's top job for the past two years, and neither the Republican nor the Conservative parties nominated a candidate to run against her.

Kabot was arrested and charged with DWI two years ago and lost an election to Throne-Host shortly after. After a trial, Kabot was found not guilty.

The Suffolk County Board of Elections says it will hand-count Kabot's write-in ballots, although counting won't begin until Nov. 16.
