NORWICH, NY – The race for the 22nd Congressional District took another turn Tuesday as one county has reported finding additional ballots – four weeks after Election Day.

Chenango County Attorney Alan Gordon wrote a letter to State Supreme Court Justice Scott DelConte dated December 1, informing the judge the Chenango County Board of Elections found 55 early voting ballots which to this date had not been accounted for.

Gordon says of those 55 newly-discovered ballots, 44 are countable and 11 are not, because those 11 voters were not registered.

In the letter, Gordon asked DelConte how the county should proceed with the canvassing of these additional ballots. No word on a response from the judge at this point.

As of Monday, Republican challenger Claudia Tenney unofficially led Democratic incumbent Rep. Anthony Brindisi by 12 votes, 155,492 to 155,480. Tenney led by more than 28,000 after early and in-person Election Day voting.

The winner won’t be determined until DelConte rules next week on challenges to more than 2,000 disputed absentee and affidavit ballots – not counting these recently-found ballots.
