The examination of election petitions gathered by Jim Zecca and Frank Vescera continued on Tuesday and a determination about their ability to force a Democratic primary will come Wednesday.

Acting Supreme Court Justice Norman Siegel, and attorneys for the Board of Elections and the two potential candidates will resume the process on Wednesday morning.

Zecca is looking to force a Democratic primary against councilman-at-large Jack LoMedico and Vescera against council president Frank Meola. LoMedico and Vescera are the Democratic parties endorsed candidates.

Of the more than 800 petitions gathered by the two candidates, roughly 200 were disputed for various reasons by the Oneida County Board of Elections. The judge is making a determination on 153 of those disputed signatures, which James Walsh – representing Zecca and Vescera – believes should be allowed to count.

If the Judge rules the pair do not have 708 or more valid signatures on their election petitions, they would be off the ballot for the upcoming election.
