Eyes On Brooks-Venditto Race For Control Of State Senate

In Newsday, Rita Cioli provides an update on the ballot counting process in the Nassau-Suffolk Senate race that may help determine control of the state senate.

She writes “Tuesday is the deadline for the return of paper absentee ballots, and a state-required recount of all the machine votes is not until next Wednesday. There are slightly more than 6,100 absentee ballots from the Nassau County part of the district, and 1,300 from Suffolk. Add to that about 1,500 affidavit ballots of voters who showed up at the wrong polling place and couldn’t be found in registration books. All told, that’s nearly 9,000 pieces of paper to check.”

The counting process is expected to go beyond Thanksgiving.
