Election Preview

In Oneida County, nine of the 23 board of legislator seats are contested. That includes four races for board positions in the city of Utica and an open seat in Remsen.
In the cities of Utica and Rome, the makeup of the common council will be determined.
That includes six people going for the three at-large seats. One of those seats is open.
Incumbents seek re-election in Utica everywhere else, including in the comptroller race.

In Rome, three of the seven council races are contested.
Only four of the seventeen legislative districts have a race for office in Herkimer County. One of those, that encompasses part of the Village of Herkimer, is an open seat. There are four town supervisor contests; Frankfort, German Flatts, Little Falls and up in the town of Webb.


Otesgo county has a nearly full slate of contests for the board of representative races.
One race to keep an eye on is in the third district, in Laurens, where Kathleen Clark, the board chairwoman for the county, is being challenged by Democrat Cathy Nardi.

There are three new york state propositions on the ballot. The first is the mandatory question, should there be mention to revise and amend the state constitution. The second proposal would give a court power to reduce or revoke the public pension of a public official if they are convicted of a felony related to their office.


And the third could impact Oneida and Herkimer counties as it pertains to the Adirondack forest preserve. It would set up a 250-acre land bank to swap property used by local government.
The three state ballot issues can only be found on the back side of your ballots tomorrow.

Polling hours for tomorrow are from 6:00 am until 9:00 pm.
