The deadline to file specific objections was July 18. 

The Brighton Town Board member is running for New York's 136th Assembly District, which will be left vacant by Majority Leader Joe Morelle.

Jaclyn Richard, the president of Rochester Now, is also running for the seat. Richard's campaign manager filed a general objection against Wilt back in early July. 

Richard's campaign manager issued the following statement to News10NBC:

"Robin Wilt was a resident of Washington State, where she voted, served on the local Democratic committee, and served as a delegate for Bernie Sanders. If she was really a resident of New York State all of that time, she broke Washington state election laws."

Wilt voted in Washington as recently as 2016.

The Monroe County Board of Elections stated Friday that they are, "unable to render a determination in this matter, the petition retains its presumption of validity."
