Counting halted in 46th Senate District
ALBANY The counting of the remaining 99 votes in the 46th Senate District has been put on hold.
The state Court of Appeals granted a motion from former Assemblyman George Amedore's legal team to hold off counting these votes until the court can decide whether it wants to hear an appeal in the case. Amedore currently leads Democrat Cecilia Tkaczyk by 37 votes.
The state Supreme Court Third Department's Appellate Division ruled on Wednesday that about one-third of the ballots invalidated by acting state Supreme Court Judge Guy Tomlinson should be counted. That decision is expected to help Tkaczyk's campaign based on who cast the remaining 99 ballots.
