Judge approves viewing of ballots in Oswego races

A state judge has given Oswego County election officials permission to look at copies of sealed ballots from last week's election.

 

Ballots from the Granby Conservative Party primary for town supervisor and from the Republican committee member races in Hastings and Parish were ordered sealed by Judge James M. McCarthy after polls closed Sept. 18.

 

Problems with voting machines threw the results of those races into question and led election commissioners Donald Wart and William Scriber to request the judge step in. On Friday, McCarthy said the commissioners could view copies of the election results so they could share their findings and recommendations with him.
