OSWEGO COUNTY, N.Y. ---The legal battle over who is the winner of the 22nd Congressional race continued in Oswego county Supreme Court. The Oneida County Court House serves as one of the designated viewing areas for the proceedings in the 22nd congressional race.

A number of issues were brought up in court on Monday. One of the bigger issues that were brought up by Claudia Tenney's campaign was voters casting ballots in the wrong location.

Tenney's legal team said those votes should not be counted. Brindisi's lawyers saying those votes should be counted. His lawyer stating as long as they are a registered voter within their community, and eligible to vote for Congress, then the vote should count regardless of where it was cast within that voter's community. We also heard testimony from both the Broome and Madison County election commissioners.

Signatures on ballots were also an issue brought up by the Tenney campaign. Tenney's campaign said some of the signatures on the ballots did not match the signatures on the voter's registration documents. Brindisi's campaign said some of those signatures did match. Brindisi's lawyers analyzing the fine details of each signature on each of the ballots. 

Judge DelConte said he is waiting to hear arguments from lawyers on both sides on each ballot before ruling on whether those ballots will count. As things stand right now, Claudia Tenney leads Anthony Brindisi by 29 votes.
