GARDEN CITY, N.Y. (AP) — Nearly a month after Election Day, an unresolved U.S. House race in New York is still too close to call.

Long Island Democratic incumbent Timothy Bishop led Republican challenger Randy Altschuler (AHLT'-shoo-luhr) by a little more than 200 votes after absentee military ballots were counted Tuesday. The race is the nation's only undecided House contest.

On Wednesday, a judge could begin reviewing up to 2,000 absentee ballots that are the subject of challenges by both sides.

Some of the challenges stem from questions about whether voters legitimately live in the 1st Congressional District. Another issue is whether voters properly filled out new paper ballots used in New York for the first time this year.

Altschuler's spokesman predicts it still could be days before a winner is declared.
