In Nassau County, New York, we have a different meaning of leftovers. From the New York Times:
MINEOLA, N.Y. -- Nearly three weeks after Election Day, the recount in the race for Nassau County executive is expected to conclude on Monday. Edward P. Mangano, the Republican challenger, has a slight lead over the Democratic incumbent, Thomas R. Suozzi.
Although Mr. Suozzi held a 237-vote lead on election night, out of about 245,000 ballots cast, he has trailed Mr. Mangano since the recount began on Nov. 9. As of Wednesday, with all but a handful of the ballots counted, Mr. Suozzi trailed by 217 votes. Tallying was halted for Thanksgiving and will resume on Monday morning. But the results may not be conclusive.
It is still unclear when the election results will be certified. On Wednesday, lawyers for the candidates are to appear in State Supreme Court to report final tallies agreed on by both sides and to discuss more than 500 votes for which objections have been filed.
