ALBANY, N.Y. – Voters have started hitting the polls Tuesday to vote in their local and regional elections.
There are more than 300 races taking place in the Capital Region this year. They include municipal races for city and town councilors, mayors and supervisors; county races for executive, sheriff, district attorney, supervisors and judges; and state propositions.
The Albany mayoral race as well as the Saratoga County mayoral and sheriff races have been hot topics in the Capital Region.
Proposal One on the New York state ballot has also been receiving a lot of attention. The proposition would amend the New York State Constitution by bringing expanded casino gambling to the state.
Supporters of the proposal say the plan would generate more money and needed jobs in New York. Opponents say it will further impoverish people who are already struggling and could bring higher rates of crime and gambling addiction.
New York polls are open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. New York has also opened an Election Day hotline for any voters who experience problems at the polls. The hotline is 1-800-771-7755.
Polling hours in Massachusetts vary per municipality, and all polls in Vermont close at 7 p.m. Opening times for Vermont polls vary by county.
