How Many Cast Ballots During First Weekend of Early Voting in NY?
Hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers have already taken advantage of the opportunity to vote early for the upcoming presidential election and local races.
During the first weekend of early voting in the Empire State, more than 420,000 cast ballots - or about 3.3% of the state's roughly 13 million voters - according to the DemocratandChronicle.com.
In the Mohawk Valley, a similar percentage of registered voters in Herkimer and Madison counties have also opted to vote early. According to local Board of Elections officials, approximately 1,300 of Herkimer County's 41,000 registered voters (3.1%) had cast a ballot as of late Monday morning. In Madison County, officials said late Monday morning that 1,522 of nearly 44,000 registered voters, or 3.4%, had already done so.
Meanwhile, poll workers in Oneida County saw more voters over the weekend than Herkimer and Madison combined, but it represented a smaller percentage of the overall electorate.
