Jimmy Vielkind reports at Capitol Confidential elections officials in the five-county 46th state Senate District race are scheduled to begin opening approximately 385 ballots this morning. Attorneys for Republican George Amedore and Democrat Cecilia Tkaczyk (KAT-chik) spent the last two weeks arguing over 887 absentee and affidavit ballots. Approximately, three-quarters of those ballots were laid aside due to objections from the Amedore campaign. Acting Supreme Court Justice Guy Tomlinson ruled that roughly half the objectionable ballots should be counted. When the judge attempted to start the count, Amedore's attorneys objected. That motion was rejected by the appellate court, Thursday. Amedore leads Tkaczyk by 111 votes, but her attorneys have said she would pull into the lead as more ballots are counted.
