With 99% of precincts reporting, Republican Claudia Tenney is ahead by a little more than 28,000 votes in the race for the 22nd Congressional District seat against incumbent Anthony Brindisi.

Tenney currently has 139,883 votes, while Brindisi has 111,461. 

A third candidate running on the Libertarian line, Keith Price, received 2% of the votes with 5,467.

Tenney was the representative in the district from 2017-19, before Brindisi won by 2% in the 2018 election.

Unlike past election years, an unprecedented number of absentee ballots were requested due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

According to Brindisi, there were 68,000 absentee ballots requested in the 22nd District, which covers all of Chenango, Cortland, Madison and Oneida counties, as well as parts of Broome, Herkimer, Oswego and Tioga counties.

In New York, absentee ballots must be postmarked by Nov. 3 and received by Nov. 10, so official results will not be reported until those ballots are counted.

Tuesday night, Claudia Tenney met her supporters at Nothin' Fancy Cafe in Vernon, while Brindisi posted a Facebook Live video.
