4000 vote swing after rereviewing the electronic results. No matter what happens here, one side is going to be very unhappy.A new vote count on Long Island appears to have called into question the apparent victory of an incumbent Democratic congressman on Long Island.
The representative, Timothy H. Bishop, led by more than 3,400 votes after the first round of counting in New York’s First Congressional District.
But after a recanvass of the voting machines in Suffolk County, Randy Altschuler, the Republican, held a razor-thin lead of 392, according to a post Saturday on the Facebook page of Mr. Altschuler’s campaign. The winner will not be determined until more than 9,000 absentee ballots are counted.
