It was just after midnight, when about 4-thousand votes separated the contenders, that Congressman Bill Owens arrived at Democratic Headquarters in Plattsburgh.
There are between 16-thousand and 20-thousand absentee ballots to be counted. Congressman Owens had requested that voting machines be impounded.
