Utica, N.Y. - After the boards of election in 7 of the 8 counties that make up the 22nd Congressional District submitted their certified vote totals in the 22nd Congressional District race to the State Supreme Court on Tuesday, Anthony Brindisi gained one more vote.

On Monday, State Supreme Court Justice Scott Delconte put a hold on the certification process for Oneida County only, but the other seven counties that make up the district had to have their certified vote totals submitted to the court by noon on Tuesday.

News Channel 2 contacted each of those seven county's boards of election Tuesday afternoon and here is the net gain or loss for each of the candidates :

Broome County took away two votes for Anthony Brindisi.

Chenango county added 13 votes for Brindisi and added 11 votes for Claudia Tenney.

Cortland County added one vote for Brindisi.

Herkimer County added three votes for Brindisi.

Madison County took two votes away from Brindisi.

Oswego County reported in open court on Monday that Tenney had picked up one vote, so that is unofficial at this point, as neither of their commissioners got back to us on Tuesday.

Tioga county had no change in votes.

With all of these numbers, that means Anthony Brindisi gained a total of one vote on Claudia Tenney's lead, which was last reported on Friday as 122, so he now trails by 121 votes, but again this new total is without Oneida County, whose certification is on hold.

Justice Delconte issued the stay for Oneida County's certification on Monday because he was concerned about a pending appeal, and what would happen is someone was sworn in in Congress, but then on appeal, a different winner declared.

Justice Delconte said he wanted time to figure out if the Appellate Division has jurisdiction to change results when someone has already been seated in Congress.

We asked the clerk for Justice Delconte Tuesday afternoon if that answer will be known by the next court date in the case, which is this Friday at 1:00 P.M., .and he said he couldn't comment.

So, we will now have to wait for Friday to see what happens next.
