Democrats are going to court over New York's 23rd House District race, looking to have voting machines impounded on election night.
Parties usually seek to impound machines the day of so campaigns can watch ballots be double-checked. The State Democratic Party is asking early because a portion of the district is requiring some people to vote on ballots rather than pull-lever machines. Those voters registered in time to vote in federal elections, but now in time for state and local elections.
Democrats want to act now to make sure those votes are counted on Nov. 3, which could be an issue in this close three-way race.
