ROME, NY - The race for the 22nd Congressional District seat had its day in State Supreme Court Tuesday afternoon.

Attorneys for the Brindisi campaign, which brought the action, and for the Tenney campaign hammered out a 25-paragraph agreement, then shared it with the attorney for the majority of the eight counties in the district, who were also in court.

"Both sides have agreed to a procedure and process for counting both affadavit and absentee ballots that includes the security measures as well as the procedure for reviewing and objecting," said Paul Der Ohannesian, attorney for the Brindisi campaign.

"Tomorrow (Wednesday) morning at 9:30 they'll start the recanvass; they'll probably start with Utica 1,1 - first district, first ward. What they'll do is they'll compare the tape that came from the voting machine to the statement of canvass that was signed on election night," said Assistant Oneida County Attorney Robert Pronteau.

"Once that's done, then they'll move on to the absentee and affadavit ballots. Now these envelopes have already been cleared and screened by the deputy commissioners and the other board of election inspectors."

None of the attorneys anticipate a reason the counties would miss the state-imposed deadline for having their results to the NYS Board of Elections.

"They have to certify by December 3rd. I think that date will be met, is my belief," said Der Ohannesian.
