UTICA - The counting of absentee ballots is underway as election officials try to determine the winner of a tight Congressional race that covers eight counties across upstate New York.

As of last week, Democrat Anthony Brindisi was approximately 1,300 votes ahead of incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. Claudia Tenney in the race for Tenney's 22nd Congressional District seat.

Absentee ballots are counted at the Oneida County Board of Elections on Wednesday, November 14.

The Oneida County Board of Elections will allow a representative from each campaign to be present as the recanvassing and absentee ballot count began Wednesday morning.

There are still more than 17,000 absentee and military ballots that need to be counted. A lawyer for the Tenney campaign says the count may take several days.
