A count of absentee and affidavit ballots by Ulster County elections officials in the hotly contested race for the 46th state Senate district was ongoing Monday evening and is to continue into today.If these uncounted ballots come in at the same percentage is the regular ballots, this would mean Tkaczyk would pick up 1950 votes to Amedore's 1050. In other words, it's enough for her pull out a narrow win.
According to the Associated Press, going into Ulster’s count on Monday, Republican Assemblyman George Amedore was leading Democrat Cecilia Tkaczyk of Duanesburg by about 700 votes, with roughly 3,000 votes to be counted in Ulster County, where Tkaczyk is expected to do well. The Associated Press did not give vote totals.
Tkaczyk led Amedore, 22,800 to 14,601, in Ulster County on Election Night.
It's possible that this one could be decided by fewer than 100 votes.
