Machines to be impounded in 46th Senate District race

George Amedore Jr. on Wednesday morning filed an order in Montgomery County Supreme Court to impound the electronic voting machines and ballots, a spokesman said.

“This morning, we filed a show cause order to protect and substantiate each and every ballot,” reads a statement from Kris Thompson. “We must institute safeguards to protect every vote in this process, which may take considerable time.”

“We firmly believe that once all the votes have been verified and counted, George Amedore will be the senator representing this five-county district,” Thompson’s statement continues.

Montgomery County Republican election Commissioner Terrance Smith said the board hasn't been served the order yet, therefore could not comment on the impact it might have.

"It depends on whatever it states," Smith said. "It could be very specific where we might have to sit on our hands until someone comes in and gives us their blessing, to the point on a daily basis someone comes in and wants to know what the counts are. Until we get it, we won't know."

According to unofficial tallies, Amedore garnered 10,178 votes in Montgomery County, while his Democratic opponent Cecilia Tkaczyk received 5,842.

Tkaczyk has an approximate 100-vote lead over Amedore district wide, according to unofficial results.
