Updated Friday 11/20…What do we mean when we say 100% reporting? Well, that means all of the election districts in that race have reported the results of voting that took place on election day and during the early voting sessions. While the votes reflected for each candidate have been updated as absentee votes are counted, the “districts reporting” information does not change.
Absentee ballot counting in the eight counties which make up the 22n Congressional District concluded late Thursday when the Chenango County Board of Elections reported its results.
Based on NewsChannel 9’s review of early voting/election night results posted on the New York State Board of elections website, as well as absentee voting results obtained through phone calls and emails with elections officials in all eight counties we came up with numbers that show Republican Claudia Tenney holding a lead of 264 votes. These are unofficial results and have not yet been certified by the county boards of elections.
There may still be several hundred affidavit ballots to be counted, and both the Brindisi and Tenney campaign have challenged a number of ballots in each county. A judge will determine whether or not they will count.
Meanwhile, counting of absentee ballots stopped Friday in Onondaga County because several employees have been exposed to COVID-19. There are two close races that impacts. The race for the open seat in the 50th Senate District between John Mannion (D) and Angi Renna (R). Renna holds a lead of about 48-hundred votes. Counting has also stopped in the 127th Assembly District where Democrat Al Stirpe holds a 935-vote lead over Republican Mark Vanesky.
All of the vote totals listed below reflect the current absentee counts and election day numbers.
