Vote-counting petitions circulating in 46th SD race

Jan 03, 2013 8:43 am
Jimmy Vielkind reports at Capitol Confidential the Working Families Party and Citizen Action, two groups that backed Democrat Cecilia Tkaczyk’s (KAT-chik's) bid for the 46th state Senate District seat, are circulating a petition to appellate judges to count some 450 votes invalidated during a court-supervised canvass. Republican George Amedore was certified the winner of that race by a 37-vote margin. Tkaczyk's lawyers have appealed the decision and will argue the matter before an appellate panel, Mon., Jan. 7. The online petition was authored by two of the Ulster county poll workers whose ballots were nullified because they voted early at the direction of county election officials. The petition has garnered more than 500 signatures. Read the full story at Capitol Confidential, a Times Union blog.
