Deadline for emailed votes extended

The deadline for counting emailed and faxed ballots has been extended to Friday at 8 p.m. according to a new directive issued by the lieutenant governor.

The deadline to count the ballots had been Tuesday at 8 p.m., however county clerks have been swamped with requests for email and fax ballots, which are available to voters displaced by Hurricane Sandy.

According to a directive released by Lt. Gov. Kim Guagagno, the deadline to apply for the ballot remains Tuesday at 5 p.m., however county clerks will now have until Friday at 12 p.m. to respond to the application.

"The governor still has to come to bat."
