No End In Sight for Tedisco-Murphy Recount

ALBANY—Some, but not all of the ten counties that comprise New York’s 20th congressional district have started counting absentee ballots in the neck-and-neck race for Kirsten Gillibrand’s former House seat.
The State Board of Elections will release their update Thursday morning around 10 a.m., spokesman Bob Brehm said. As of Tuesday, Assemblyman Jim Tedisco was leading by 17 votes. 
I don’t have anything resembling an overall updated tally, but for those who can’t wait until then, here’s what I do have:
According to county elections officials, counting has not begun in Warren, Washington, Essex or Otsego counties. Officials there have focused on preparatory work for counting absentee ballots; officials in Essex and Washington counties told me they were going through and checking absentee ballots against poll books to ensure that no one who submitted a paper ballot voted in person.
