Vote Row - "A" - All The Way

Get Ready to Cast Your Ballot Decide how you will vote before you go to the polls

Although this is a local election year, the ballot has many candidates on it and some very important choices for voters. In addition to the candidates for Town Office, County Sheriff, County Judge, and three NY State Supreme Court Justices on the front of the ballot, there are five proposals to amend the NY State Constitution on the back of the ballot. Reduce your time and exposure to others inside the polling site by making your choices ahead of time.
