Vote: Election help for Erie County residents [ALERT]

On Primary Day, only members of individual parties can vote, if an election is taking place on their party line. Republicans vote for Republicans, Democrats for Democrats, Conservative and Independent Party members for the better of two candidates running on their line, who are vying for their party’s endorsement.

It can be a little confusing, because there are many individual races on various ballot lines, that only members of those parties can vote for, in addition to a Special Election taking place today, about which even the Board of Elections is not fully disclosing. However, among the more critical races are for County Executive and the Special Election for the 144th Assembly — Sam Hoyt’s old seat.

Chris Collins is vying for the Independent Party endorsement, and as such only those registered as members of the Independent Party can vote in this race, and are encouraged to vote for Collins.

Sean Kipp is the pro-life, pro-traditional marriage Republican endorsed candidate for the 144th. Don’t be confused by Sean Ryan, who is his Democrat opponent. Everyone, no matter your party affiliation can vote in this race, as long as you live in the district.

If you are unsure if you live in the 144th, you can find out here: http://assembly.state.ny.us/mem/?sh=search
