Election officials are one step closer to learning the final primary election results as they were allowed to start counting absentee ballots on Thursday.

Absentee ballots for the Sept. 13 primary elections had to be postmarked by Sept. 12 and received by the local Board of Election by Sept. 20. Election officials in both Herkimer and Oneida counties started counting those absentee ballots on Thursday.

It’s possible that some of the results for the local races could change once all of the votes have been tallied. For example, in the 119th Assembly District, Republican Dennis Bova defeated his opponent Frederick Nichols by 24 votes. As of Election Day, there were 212 absentee ballots waiting to be counted, and more possibly coming in between then and now.
