Madison County wrapped up counting of absentee ballots in the 22nd congressional district late Thursday afternoon. The final, unofficial, count left Democrat Anthony Brindisi with 1063 votes and Republican Incument Claudia Tenney with 739, for a net gain of 324 votes for Brindisi.

In Cortland County, 612 of the absentees went to Brindisi; 405 to Tenney, for a net gain of 207 for Brindisi. Broome, Tioga, Oswego, Oneida and Herkimer are still in the progress of counting absentees and hope to finish on Friday; Chenango County begins counting their absentee ballots Friday morning at 10:00.

As a result of a court-ordered impoundment, security for the ballots is very tight.

"When they want to get into the room, we come over, they unlock one lock, we unlock the other, we make sure there's a republican and a democrat in there at all times," said Herkimer County Sheriff, Christopher Farber, who is in charge of ballot security for that county.

While all numbers represent a final tally, all results are considered unofficial until each county certifies them with the New York State Board of Elections. They have until December 3rd to do that.
