A judge is likely to play a role in the final outcome.

Republican Claudia Tenney is vying to reclaim her seat in Congress from U.S. Representative Anthony Brindisi.

She had a lead of more than 28,000 votes on November 3, but absentee ballots cast in the race have highly favored Brindisi, steadily eating away at Trump-supported Tenney’s lead, leaving her only around 100 votes ahead of the incumbent Democrat. Brindisi’s campaign says it could be less than 100.

There are contested and uncounted votes that have been secured in Oswego County.  County Supreme Court Justice Scott DelConte November 20 ordered representatives of the Boards of Elections in each of the eight counties making up the district, including Broome, Chenango and Tioga, to appear in court November 23 along with legal counsel for both candidates.

Results of the November 3 election must be certified in New York by November 28.
