UTICA, New York – Brindisi for Congress issued the following statement regarding the ongoing ballot count in NY-22:
“Election results from the remaining counties in the district show Anthony Brindisi has now taken the lead. We are hopeful that once New York’s 22nd congressional district is certified, Representative Brindisi will be sworn in again to continue his bipartisan work on behalf of this district. As we’ve said from the start, once the election process is completed Anthony will be re-elected. Democracy might force us to wait sometimes, but voters’ faith in this process and our Republic should remain steadfast.” -Luke Jackson, Brindisi for Congress spokesman
Yesterday and today, County Boards of Election provided their most up-to-date ballot count.
Reports indicate Congressman Anthony Brindisi now leads.
Yesterday, the court issued an injunction preventing counties from certifying the results of the NY-22 election until further notice and both sides are briefing the court about next steps for resolving uncounted ballots.
