NY-22 house seat to become vacant Jan. 3 with court case continuing into 2021

(WBNG) — People who live within New York’s 22nd Congressional District will be without a representative in the U.S. House to start off the new year as the term of Democrat Anthony Brindisi is set to end before the results of the district’s 2020 election can be certified.

A court case which is ruling on more than a thousand challenged ballots in the election is set to continue through the first week of January, New York state Supreme Court Justice DelConte said.

The justice had hoped to finish ruling on challenged ballots by the end of the year, but he indicated that would be impossible after learning that Oneida County would not finish their court-ordered recanvass until early to mid-next week. The justice is unable to review on challenged ballots until the recanvass is completed.
