Long Island House Race Is Last in Nation Yet to Be Decided

A month after polls closed on Election Day, the last remaining congressional race in the nation remains too close to call.

Long Island Democratic incumbent Timothy Bishop led Republican challenger Randy Altschuler by a little more than 200 votes after absentee military ballots were counted on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, a judge could begin reviewing up to 2,000 absentee ballots that are the subject of challenges by both sides.

The ballots are being challenged for a variety of reasons. They include whether voters legitimately live in the 1st Congressional District. Another issue is whether they properly filled out new paper ballots used in New York for the first time this year.

Altschuler's spokesman predicts it still could be days before a winner is declared.
