Elections
The Election office is responsible for helping to get people registered to vote. The office is in charge of the primary, general and special elections that are held. We have two custodians and two back-up custodians who program and recanvass the voting machines before and after each election. We are also in charge of training people to be election inspectors to work at the polling places registering the voters. Each voting machine must have four inspectors (two from each party).

We are required by Election Law to print an enrollment book each year showing all the registered voters in the county along with their party affiliation. The Election office works closely with the Town Clerks as they supply us with the positions up for election in their town each year. They also keep us posted on any changes in their town which would effect the voting process.

In August or September we are required by law to send out mail check cards. These cards are sent to every registered voter in the county. If the voter has moved, the card is returned to our office and we must send them a new registration for, if they moved within the county.

The Commissioners must act on the election petitions that are filed with our office. They check to see if all the pertinent information is on each sheet of the petition. It is up to them to see that the petitions meet all the NYS Board of Election requirements. If not, the petition is invalid.

We are also responsible for helping people in the Nursing Homes who are registered to vote. They vote by absentee ballot and we send two people (one from each party) to assist them with their ballot.

Absentee ballots are available to any registered voter who will be out of the county on election day due to business, vacation, school or to anyone who is ill and cannot get to the polls. They fill out an Absentee Ballot Application and we mail them the ballot. They in turn mail the ballot back to our office.
