It's Election Day and people across the region will head to the polls cast their ballot on some of the biggest races across Central and Northern New York. YNN's Brad Vivacqua reports.
SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The Onondaga County Board of Elections expects voter turnout to be low on this Election Day. Less than 25 percent of voters are expected in Onondaga County.
Regardless of voter turnout, several races still need to be determined. Voters in Syracuse will vote for one of three candidates for mayor: incumbent Stephanie Miner, Conservative Party candidate Ian Hunter, or Green Party Candidate Kevin Bott.
Further north, the race for district attorney is heating up in St. Lawrence County.
However, voters across New York will have six statewide propositions to vote on, in addition to any local races. Election officials are reminding voters to complete both sides of their ballot.
"I know we had a problem out in Lysander last year, we had a proposition on the ballot but it was tiny, it was up in the corner and people did miss it because the inspectors when they first started the day, didn't remind voters, it did by, an hour in. But it's going to be hard for anyone to miss these. There's just so many of them," said Hellen Kiggins Walsh, Onondaga County Board of Elections Commissioner.
She said inspectors will do their best to remind voters to make sure they complete both sides of the ballot. Polls are open until 9 p.m. on Tuesday.
