Onondaga County Elections 2023: A stepping stone for what's to come in 2024

NATALIA DAVIDSON, NCC NEWS REPORTER: General election day is tomorrow. There are more than 300 thousand registered voters in Onondaga County, but not a lot of them are expected to turnout to vote in an off-year and low turnout election. Elections Commissioner Dustin Czarny.
DUSTIN CZARNY, ELECTIONS COMMISSIONER: It decides your sales tax, it decides your zoning for your apartment and whether code enforcement is holding landlords accountable for not fixing up these apartments.
DAVIDSON: Online registration, reduced registration deadlines, and new equipment have all been adopted by the county to make more accessible. They also have an eye on transparency.
CZARNY: We have democrats and republicans watching everything, every process of the board of elections, so nobody can say that one party was trying to do something or one person was trying to do something. We always work in pairs.
DAVIDSON: Polling stations are listed on the board of elections website and will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. across the county. Natalia Davidson NCC News.

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.”
