Primary Voters Advised To Heed Election Changes
Utica, NY (WIBX) - If you're eligible to vote in the Primaries taking place in portions of Oneida County this week, the Board of Elections wants you to keep the following details and changes in mind. Republican Election Commissioner, Pamela Mandryck, said, "Be aware that the 101st Assembly District is only New Hartford and Paris and only for Republican or Conservative voters."
The Republican race is between Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney and Village of Walden Mayor, Brian Maher of Orange County. Tenney is also on the Conservative ballot for the newly redrawn district. Another important change to keep in mind is the date change. Mandryck said, "The state mandated that we change the election day from Tuesday September 11th, which would have obviously been the typical day, but there's the 9/11 tragedy and we don't hold elections on that day, so it's been moved to Thursday, September 13th."
Voting hours remain the same. Polls are open from Noon to 9:00p.m. For more information, or to find out your voting location, contact the Oneida County Board of Elections at the following numbers/representative:
