It is an exciting day today at the Board.  Lots of things are happening.  We're stuffing absentee ballots (which came in this morning, about 97 cartons worth) and getting last minute registrations pumped into the system.  Today is the last day to register for the November 3rd General Election, so make sure you get those forms in to us.  

You can check your registration status here, and download new registration forms here.

Have a great weekend!

Au Revoir, Mariliz!

MarilizPines.pngAu Revoir Mariliz!

Today we’d like to wish Deputy Commissioner Mariliz Pines a fond farewell upon her retirement after 10 years with us here in Elections. Throughout her time here Mariliz has helped to bring about several important changes, not only in our office but for the County in general. During her tenure the switch was made to the new voting machines we use today, and she along with the rest of the staff worked tirelessly to ensure that there was as smooth a transition as possible.

While we know that she will miss working with us here in the office (and we’ll miss her too!) we also know that she will thoroughly enjoy getting to spend as much time as she can with her grandchildren.

We wish her the best on her retirement, and will keep our fingers crossed that she’ll visit with brownies soon!

Petitions and Primaries

Today is the third day for turning in designating petitions (the main petitions that allow candidates to be on the ballot).  We have had a pretty good turnout so far.  All of the petitions that have been turned in as well as the primaries we will have in September are linked on the BroomeVotes home page, both at the top of the page and in the information windows below.

Do you have any funny stories about petitions?  Either signing or passing, did anything crazy happen?  Let us know on our Facebook page:  https://www.facebook.com/BroomeVotes

Check back nightly for updated reports on petitions and primaries!

Happy Trails, Linda!

LindaWagner.pngToday, we say goodbye to one of our own.  Linda Montero Wagner has chosen to retire from her position here at the Board of Elections after 10 years of service.  Her funny stories and positive outlook will be missed, as will her unsung abilities in the role of Unofficial Office Lunch Wrangler.

Linda has been a great teacher of Inspectors (she ought to be, she already retired from being a Spanish teacher on Long Island) and a wonderful influence on the younger staff members.

We wish her all the best on her (third time's the charm!) retirement.  

And congratulations are in order for Kelcy Wickman, who will be replacing Linda as Election Data Specialist.

Halfway through Petition Season

Here we are, on June 16th, just about halfway through Petition Season.  You may have been visited by now by friendly volunteers carrying clipboards and asking you to help their candidates get on the ballot.

Please remember that to sign is not to pledge a vote, and that the petitioners are volunteers out beating the pavement for their candidates.  If you don't want to sign, you don't have to.   Please be polite to these civic-minded people.  

Without these petition signatures, candidates can't get on the ballot for you to vote in or out.

We've got just a couple more weeks of the season left, as petitions must be turned in between July 6th and 9th this year.

So please be kind, sign if you wish or decline politely.  The volunteers mean you no harm.
