NY-23 May Flip due to Tabulation Error, Absentees
There is news from New York indicating that Bill Owens may lose his seat in the House after the correction of an error in the Oswego county returns added about 1,200 votes to Doug Hoffman’s vote total.
Owens now leads by 3,026 votes, 66,698 to 63,672.
It is believed there are a sufficient amount of uncounted absentee ballots (approximately 10,000 were sent out) that could still affect the outcome of this race. New York election law states that absentee ballots received by November 16th and postmarked by November 2nd will count in this special election.
