OSWEGO, NY – For the most part, voter turnout was relatively strong for Tuesday’s election.
“We had a good turnout. At the Pulaski Village office, the ink on one pad of ballots was smudged,” Legislator Shawn Doyle said. “More than 30 ballots wouldn’t work, and people had to do affidavits.”
Legislator Milferd Potter said the same in his district, good numbers with no real problems.
“Everything was going smoothly,” Dick Adkins, one the county’s election commissioners, said Tuesday evening. “There have been no real big problems.”
In Granby, some of the ballots were smeared, he noted.
They were taken out and replaced with no real issue, he noted.
“There were some complaints like people wanted more room or this or that,” Adkins said. “But overall, we haven’t had any big problems. I’m very pleased with the way things are going.”
Things were also going well in Mexico. Legislator Jack Proud reported a good voter turnout.
“We had a pretty good turnout in Mexico. There were a few problems, but nothing monumental,” he said.
For the most part, voting went smoothly, he said, adding that voters had already used the new machines for the recent primary elections and were getting more accustomed tot them.
“Everything’s going well,” added Legislator Mike Kunzwiler of Oswego. “I haven’t heard of any major problems at all.”
