Oneida Co. Board Of Elections Makes Final Push For New Voters

Utica, NY (WIBX) – Time is quickly running out for people hoping to cast their ballots in this November’s election, as voter registration ends tomorrow.

According to Pam Mandryck, the Republican Commissioner for the Oneida County Board of Elections, this year’s turnout has been strong.

“I know in September alone we did 13,000 registrations,” Mandryck said. “That’s excluded what we refer to as agency based, like the DMV, Social Services… that sort of thing. So, that was a fairly significant number.”

For anyone unable to register by tomorrow, you still have one last chance during this Saturday’s Statewide Voter Registration Day.

The Oneida County Board of Elections will be open from 2 to 9 p.m., to help people sign up.

Mandryck says although getting people to vote is important, keeping them actively involved in their community is the bigger issue.

“This is a very important year for not only national, but statewide and local politics,” Mandryck said. “The hope is that once they go ahead and register, it’s not going to be a passing fancy, so to speak, where they just vote for the presidential and then we don’t see them again for another four years.”

A sample ballot for the November 6 election in Oneida County can be seen below. The front side contains local, state and presidential candidate. On the back are boxes regarding three local propositions.
