New Yorkers registered with a political party take to the polls tomorrow, to pick the candidates that will represent their parties in the November elections.
In most of the Catskills region, tomorrow's election will be a quiet one; many towns have no primary races at all.
In a stroke of luck for officials at the Schoharie County Board of Elections, who have been forced to abandon their flood-damaged offices in the county building in Schoharie for a temporary location at the Old Stone Fort Museum, no primaries were scheduled for Schoharie County this season, according to a New York State polling official. (Schoharie County Board of Elections officials could not be reached for this story.)
Only one polling place in the Catskills region scheduled to hold a primary has been moved because of flood damage. In Delaware County, the Sidney polling location for districts 2, 4, 5, 6, and 7, normally at the Fireman's Training Center on River Street, has been moved to the Civic Center, 21 Liberty Street, room 202.
Ulster County, which is governed by a county legislature with an executive, redrew its legislative districts this year, moving from 12 districts with multiple legislators representing each district to a single-member system with 23 districts. This fall's election is the first time the new districts will be used. Ten of the 23 new legislative districts have at least one primary election.
Greene County has a few primaries at the town, county and state levels.
Only four towns in Sullivan County have primary elections this season: Bethel, Lumberland, Thompson and Tusten.
