Utica, N.Y. - The race for the 22nd Congressional District is expected to soon be back in the hands of State Supreme Court Judge Scott Delconte.
Each county resumed their proceedings this week to come up with a final vote count.
Today, Oneida, Cortland and Chemung counties resumed.
Madison, Oswego and Herkimer counties resumed on Monday and Broome and Tioga counties resumed on Tuesday.
Judge Delconte set this schedule last week.
The boards of election are holding meetings with representatives of both incumbent Anthony Brindisi and challenger Claudia Tenney in attendance.
Tenney leads the vote count currently by just 12 votes.
The boards of election are going 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.
The Oneida County Board of Elections would not allow the media in Wednesday morning to shoot any video of the proceedings, citing COVID and wanting to keep everyone safe.
After Judge Delconte was made aware of this, he ordered the Board of Elections to either allow the media in or stream the proceedings live on a camera for the media to view the process that way.
A streaming camera was eventually set up.
Also on Wednesday, some Claudia Tenney supporters who believe there was fraud in this election protested outside the Board of Election offices.
Judge Delconte so far has said there is no evidence of any fraud in any of the 8 counties that make up the 22nd Congressional District.
Per Judge Delconte's schedule, Oneida County has through Friday, if needed, to complete its proceedings.
That's the same day the next court date in the case is scheduled, again in Judge Delconte's courtroom.
