Voters turned out in great numbers state-, county-, and town-wide for the general elections held on Tuesday, November 4.
Kathleen Farber of the Herkimer County Board of Elections, attributed the healthy number of voters to a combination of great weather and the many interesting races.
“It was an incredibly fantastic turnout throughout the county. It was nice to see the voters get out to vote…it certainly has kept us busy,” said Farber.
Official results will be announced once the absentee ballots are counted, however, even with approximately 100 absentee ballots out, the outcome of the races will remain the same.
Farber said the ballots must be postmarked by November 3 and received at the Board of Elections by November 12 to be counted.
