It’s Election Day!

Get out and vote today at your polling place.

All of the county legislators are up for election this year and there’s an election for county treasurer. Also, most towns have elections for town board members, town clerks and town justices. A number of towns also have referendums concerning changing the length of term for various town positions.

There also are state referendums this year — six of them to be exact. Be sure to vote on them too.

Here is what they are about:

1) Authorize the development of up to seven new casinos in New York state.

2) Grant additional Civil Service credit to veterans certified as disabled after they have been appointed or promoted to a Civil Service position.

3) Extend for 10 years the authority of counties, cities, towns and villages to exclude from their constitutional debt limits indebtedness from the construction or reconstruction of sewage facilities.

4) Resolve competing claims of ownership of land between the state and private parties concerning land in the town of Long Lake, Hamilton County.

5) Allow NYCO Minerals to continue mining operations in the town of Lewis, Essex  County.

6) Increase to age 80 the maximum age to which state Supreme Court justices and judges on the Court of Appeals may serve. Now they must retire at 70.
