Tompkins County voters registered in either the Democratic or Working Families parties will go to the polls this Tuesday to vote in party primaries. Polls will be open from noon to 9pm on Tuesday, September 10th.
Throughout the county, registered Democratic and Working Families party voters will select one of four candidates to earn the party nomination for a ten-year seat on the County Court bench. Running on both lines are Pamela Bleiwas, Seth Peacock, Kelly A. Damm, and Joseph Cassidy. In a portion of the City of Ithaca, Democratic voters in the 2nd legislative district will pick Patty Sipman or Kathy Luz Herrera to run for County Legislator in November.
Monday, September 9th is the last day to apply in person for an absentee ballot, for voters who won't be able to vote in person on Tuesday. Applications by mail had to be postmarked by September 3rd.
The Tompkins County Board of Elections says flooding damage has made the Ithaca Reform Temple in Lansing unavailable as a polling place. Voters in Lansing Districts 5 and 7 who were slated to vote there this Tuesday will instead vote at the Lansing Village Hall at 2405 North Triphammer Road.
