Utica, N.Y. - The ongoing process to determine a winner in the 22nd Congressional District race continued in Oneida County on Wednesday and Claudia Tenney says she gained 93 votes during the first day of the Oneida County Board of Election's canvassing of 1,028 controversial affidavit ballots.

We reached Oneida County Democratic Chairperson Carolann Cardone earlier in the day on Wednesday, and said as of 3:00 P.M. the canvassing efforts got through 139 ballots, but she didn't have the breakdown as to the number of those 139 ballots that were for Tenney and those that were for Anthony Brindisi.

We were unable to reach Cardone afterward to get a final total.

According to Claudia Tenney, a total of 173 ballots were gotten through by the end of the day as of 6:00 P.M., and she says 133 of the those ballots were in her favor and 40 were in Anthony Brindisi's favor, meaning she says she picked up a total of 93 votes.

Tenney leads Anthony Brindisi by 29 votes in the race, so she says with those 93 added votes she is now up a total of 122 votes unofficially.

All of these canvassed affidavit ballots will have to be reviewed by State Supreme Court Justice Scott Delconte before they become official.

Luke Jackson, a spokesperson for the Brindisi campaign, says their campaign had not received final numbers for the day as of 6:00 P.M. on Wednesday from the Oneida County Board of Elections.

Earlier this month on January 6th, the Oneida County Board of Elections informed the State Supreme Court that it had discovered that it had failed to process the registration applications of more than 2,400 voters in time for election day, people who applied online, and on time through the Oneida County DMV website.

Last week State Supreme Court Justice Scott Delconte ordered the Oneida County BOE to go through 1,028 affidavit ballots that were rejected for a lack of registration and find out which of those ballots, if any, came from people in that group of 2,400.

Judge Delconte says those ballots will count towards the final tally.

The Oneida County Board of Elections has until 6:00 P.M. on Friday to get through all 1,028 affidavit ballots.

Both Claudia Tenney and Anthony Brindisi have a representative at each of the tables in the canvassing effort taking place at MVCC in Utica.
