Montgomery County officials today are to begin counting hundreds of absentee ballots from Tuesday's Democratic primary in the special election to fill the District 4 seat on the County Council. In the Democratic primary, Board of Education member Nancy Navarro (Northeastern County) claimed victory yesterday over Del. Benjamin F. Kramer. But with Navarro leading by fewer than 80 votes, with all precincts reporting, Kramer was not conceding. In the Republican primary, tax activist Robin Ficker easily won his party's nomination.
