Utica, N.Y. - The race for the 22nd Congressional District is now back in the hands of the eight boards of election that make up the district.

Each county will resume their proceedings this week to come up with a final vote count.

Three of them started on Monday, Madison, Oswego and Herkimer counties.

Broome and Tioga counties will resume on Tuesday.

Oneida, Cortland and Chenango counties will resume on Wednesday.

A New York State Supreme Court Judge set this schedule last week.

The boards of election will hold meetings with representatives of both incumbent Anthony Brindisi and challenger Claudia Tenney.

Tenney leads the vote count currently by just 12 votes.

The boards of election will go over prior objections and challenges to envelopes and ballots, and canvass all affidavit, absentee, military and special ballots, including those that were administratively rejected that were not previously properly canvassed.

Herkimer County Republican Election Commissioner Kim Tranter says Herkimer County's job was completed in just over an hour on Monday, "We did a correction of some ballot errors. We had 7 absentee ballots that needed correcting and 2 affidavit ballots and what is entailed was just writing the circumstances of that particular ballot, either on the ballot or on the ballot envelope, so the disposition of the ballot."

Those ballots will now head back to State Supreme Court.

The next court date in State Supreme Court is set for Friday, but whether we will know who won by then, is still not known.
