Election Day is Nov. 2. But a week of early voting starts this Saturday, Oct. 23 for New York. Six polling places will be open throughout Onondaga County from Oct. 23 to Oct. 31.
This year’s ballot is headlined by the race for Syracuse mayor, where incumbent Ben Walsh will face Democrat Khalid Bey and Republican Janet Burman. All 17 seats of the Onondaga County Legislature are also up for election, with a contested race in every seat, as well as a number of Syracuse Common Council seats and a variety of suburban municipal offices.
In the Common Council, Councilor-at-Large Bey gave up his council seat to run for Mayor, and Joe Carni, councilor for the 1st district, will leave the council to pursue a county legislature seat in East Syracuse. Councilor-at-Large Ronnie White Jr. lost his primary election.
Any voter eligible for the Nov. 2 election can vote early at any polling place, no excuse required. The voting process is the same as on Election Day. Check your voter registration here.
