SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News) – Onondaga County Local Election day is tomorrow.
Despite over 300 thousand registered voters in Onondaga County alone, off-year elections are notorious for their lower voter turnout and large number of uncontested seats. Despite this, Elections Commissioner Dustin Czarny sees this election as a chance to prepare for the upcoming presidential election in 2024.
Following the tumultuous 2020 presidential election and the consequent conspiracies surrounding its conclusion, Czarny has continued to prepare for future elections in a way that prioritizes transparency and shuts down baseless conspiracies.
“[We] invite people to watch our processes. [We] remind people that we have paper ballots so they can be hand counted if there is ever a question. Everything we do is bipartisan. We have democrats and republicans watching every process of the board of elections.”
Polling stations and candidates are listed on the Onondaga County Board of Elections website.
