  The SPEAKER laid before the House the following communication from 
the Clerk of the House of Representatives:

                                              Office of the Clerk,


                                     House of Representatives,

                                 Washington, DC, November 7, 2018.
     Hon. Paul D. Ryan,
     The Speaker, House of Representatives,
     Washington, DC.
       Dear Mr. Speaker: I have the honor to transmit herewith a 
     facsimile copy of a letter received from Mr. Robert Brehm and 
     Mr. Todd Valentine, Co-Executive Directors, New York State 
     Board of Elections, indicating that, according to the 
     preliminary results of the Special Election held November 6, 
     2018, the Honorable Joseph D. Morelle was elected 
     Representative to Congress for the 25th Congressional 
     District, State of New York.
       With best wishes, I am,
           Sincerely,
     Karen L. Haas.
                                  ____

                                                    New York State


                                           Board of Elections,

                                     Albany, NY, November 7, 2018.
     Hon. Karen L. Haas,
     Clerk, House of Representatives,
     Washington DC.
       Dear Ms. Haas: This is to advise you that the unofficial 
     results of the Special Election held on Tuesday, November 6, 
     2018 for Representative in Congress from the Twenty-fifth 
     Congressional District of New York show that Joseph D. 
     Morelle received 145,168 votes, Jim Maxwell received 103,510 
     votes, and there were 145 write-in votes of the 248,823 total 
     votes cast for that office on Election Day.
       It would appear from these unofficial results that Joseph 
     D. Morelle was elected as Representative in Congress from the 
     Twenty-fifth Congressional District of New York. Please see 
     also attached notice of unofficial results from the Monroe 
     County Board of Elections. New York Congressional District 
     Twenty-five is wholly contained within that county.
       To the best of our knowledge and belief at this time, there 
     is no contest to this election.
       As soon as the official results are certified to this 
     office by the Monroe County Board of Elections and the New 
     York State Board of Canvassers, an official Certification of 
     Election will be prepared for transmittal as required by law.
           Sincerely,
     Robert A. Brehm,
       Co-Executive Director.
     Todd D. Valentine,
       Co-Executive Director.
