Tuesday was day two of judicial review of challenged ballots in the 22nd Congressional District Race.

State Surpeme Court Justice in Oswego County, Scott DelConte, wanted to be done with his review by Wednesday, but there is still a lot to do.

Justice DelConte has to go through all of the disputed ballots, more than 2,000, and determine which should or shouldn't be counted.

Attorneys from both Anthony Brindisi and Claudia Tenney's campaigns provided legal reasoning for their objections in court.

So far, Justice DelConte has gotten through Oswego, Herkimer, Cortland, and Madison County disputed ballots.

Tioga did not have any disputed ballots, so Chenango, which was started on Tuesday, Broome and Oneida County ballots are left.

Oneida County presents the biggest challenge because DelConte cannot start reviewing their ballots until they have canvassed them all, which won't happen until sometime next week.

As of Tuesday afternoon, the Oneida County Board of Elections has canvassed 689 ballots out of the 1,797 challenged ballots.

Out of those, the BOE has counted 90 votes as of Monday. An attorney from the Brindisi campaign says as of Monday's count, the gap is between 3 to 5 votes, but did not specify who is in the lead.

Justice DelConte says the review of challenged ballots will continue into January.

So it looks like 2021 will start without a representative in the 22nd Congressional District.

Court resumes Wednesday morning at 8:30 a.m.
