UTICA, N.Y. -- Judicial review for the 22nd Congressional race continued into its third day on Wednesday, with the latest tally showing Congressman Anthony Brindisi leading Claudia Tenney by 14 votes -- a number that's expected to change as more challenged votes are ruled on.

Oswego County Judge Scott Delconte spent a majority of the day reviewing ballot situations in Madison, Chenango, and Oneida Counties. In Madison County, 92 ballots were submitted with time stamping issues. 

Those ballots were timed stamped on Nov. 4, a day after Election Day, meaning those ballots should not be counted. However, after six BOE members testified in court, Delconte determined that the Madison County Board of Elections possibly time-stamped the ballots incorrectly. He then ordered the ballots to be sent back to the Madison County Board of Elections to allow them to fix the error. Once the error is fixed, the ballots will be brought back to the Oswego County Courthouse for Judicial review. The ballots will then be counted. BOE members have until Jan. 4 to return the ballots.

After a recess, the judge then transitioned to address the Chenango county ballot disputes. Both Anthony Brindisi and Claudia Tenney have challenged over a hundred ballots that they believe were marked incorrectly. The judge then began going through each ballot to determine voter intent and if the ballot was valid. 

BOE members in Oneida County canvassed 324 ballots as of Wednesday afternoon. BOE members estimate they have to canvass about 625 more ballots. Canvassing was scheduled to end at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
