The Jefferson County Board of Elections on Tuesday invalidated the Working Families Party nominating petition of Democrat Michael F. Astafan, who is running for re-election to the District 6 seat on the Jefferson County Board of Legislators.

Jonathan L. Hirschey, who is running for the District 6 seat on the Republican line, filed a specific objection to Mr. Astafan’s petition.

Mr. Astafan said his petition had been rejected because of a formatting issue.

The petition was invalidated because Mr. Astafan failed to include a preamble with his form, according to Democratic Election Commissioner Babette M. Hall and Republican Election Commissioner Jerry O. Eaton.
