It is the Courts goal to open all of the ballots so they may be voted for the other races (excepting t11 46 the LL Senate). The hearing will commence with Schenetady County and then Montgomery County, and they therefore must produce all unopened ballots in Court on the afternoon of Novembet 29. On Friday, November 30, the Court intends to proceed with the review of unopened ballots beginning with Albany, then Greene, and then Ulster County. If the canvassing has not been completed in any of these counties they are to report that to the Court and continue canvassing. The Court has indicated to Counsel that if we can certify all other races on December l, I will grant them additional time to prepare for the remainder of the hearing to be conducted before the Court. SO ORDERED!. Very truly yours,
