28 Voters and Counting

Hard-fought, contentions elections usually bring more voters to the polls than usual. Unless it’s a race for an office not many people know or care about. Like a civil court or surrogate court post.

While the positions themselves are powerful (patronage, deciding cases, being called “Your Honor”), the races don’t seem to have generated an avalanche of voter turnout just yet.

According to one reader who voted about an hour ago on a machine the 49th Assembly District – home to those civil court and surrogate court races today – only 28 people voted in his polling site, which included five election districts Election District.

Maybe the after-work crowd will pick things up.
