The Albany Register (Albany, NY), May 9, 1809 left the returns for the Ward 3 blank, but it reported total votes without Ward 3 as follows: Henry Yates, Jr., 657; Thomas Barlow, 636; William North, 615; and, Henry Glen, 601. These results were mostly likely not considered Official because of the missing information from Ward 3. Despite the controversy concerning votes in Ward 3 reported by the Western Budget, William North and Henry Glen were the elected.
"Last year, fellow-citizens, you were presented with a statement from the third ward, giving the federal candidates a plurality of 87 votes. I then unequivocally declared that this could not have been effected by fair means, and that the boxes were pilfered by the midnight robber. The difference between the Senator and Assembly canvass was, to my mind, sufficient evidence of the infamy of the transaction. -- But when I examined the affidavits of those men who had sworn in what manner they had voted, I had no longer any hesitation in forming my opinion, that the boxes must have been robbed by night, and other ballots put in the place of those stolen. If any thing was wanting to complete the proof, that infamy was perpetrated, it is the following statement -- from which it appears, that in that ward the votes on both sides were equal for Assembly. There have also been two elections for Assistant Alderman, and in both the federal and repubican candidates were equal. -- Such, citizens, are the means by which these men think of succeeding -- and can you submit to be deceived and deprived of your suffrages by such infamous conduct? You have already answered, No! -- Fellow-citizens of the third ward, you have evinced by your votes and vigilance, that the vile machinations of designing men cannot always succeed."
