Voters petition appellate court over 46th Senate District decision

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, N.Y. - More turmoil over who won the race in the 46th Senate District even after George Amedore has been certified as the victor and filed his oath of office.

On Friday, disenfranchised voters delivered petitions to the appellate court demanding a judge count their ballots.

Signatures were collected after two voters started an online petition. 

One voter NEWS10 spoke to says she feels her vote didn't count because of a mistake on a write-in ballot.

"I was like shocked I thought I did everything right, they told me I didn't double check but anybody could have made that mistake if they are using paper ballots and not a regular machine," said the voter.

Gary Ginsburg, a spokesman from Cecilia Tkazyck's office - Amedore's opponent - says they are confident the judge will rule in favor of the voters and her victory is still possible.

"We're confident that when the voters' voices are heard, Miss Tkacyzk will be victorious," said Ginsburg over the phone.

He also reiterated his confidence that the judges of the appellate division will not allow hyper-technical errors to disenfranchise hundreds of New Yorkers.
