NY-20 congresisonal race now tied
The NY-20 race is still in the counting stage and the candidates are now tied according to the most recent report. The Albany Times Union reports that 3,000 of the outstanding absentee ballots were cast by Republicans, 2,200 by Democrats, and 940 by unaffiliated voters. This MSNBC piece from last week discusses candidate Tedisco’s residency situation. He was not permitted to vote for himself in the special election because he does not live in the district. He has said he will move to the district if elected. The piece lists several other elections that have been decided by one vote over the years. A hearing was scheduled for today about the counting of absentee ballots. Military and overseas ballots have until next Monday, April 13, to arrive.
