Election Law Section 9-218
Proceedings by boards of canvassers to carry into effect a court order
1.Upon the re-convening of the state board of canvassers or any county board of canvassers, or of the board of elections of the city of New York as a county or city board of canvassers, by order of a court of competent jurisdiction, for the purpose of correcting an error or of performing a duty imposed by law or by an order of the court granted pursuant to law, the meeting for that purpose shall be deemed a continuance of its regular session, and any new or corrected statement, determination or certificate which is made to give effect to the order shall stand in lieu of the original statement, determination or certificate.
2.When a new or corrected statement or certificate, to give effect to an order of the court, shall vary from the original statement or certificate respecting the votes cast for an office for which the state board of canvassers is required to canvass statements made by county boards, the board of elections forthwith shall transmit certified copies of the new or corrected statement or certificates to the state board of elections. The state board of canvassers shall meet within five days after such a certified copy has been received by the state board of elections. From such certified copy, such board shall make a new statement as to the votes for such office cast in the state or political subdivision in which such office is filled, and shall determine and declare what person or persons whose votes are affected by such new or corrected statement have been, by the greatest number of votes, duly elected to the office or offices. The state board of canvassers and the state board of elections shall, respectively, have the same powers and duties in respect to new or corrected statements that they have in respect to original statements.
