A Year in Elections

It's been quite a year at the Board of Elections.  We launched our new website, BroomeVotes.com.  We established a new Adopt a Polling Place program, and made it through three separate elections.  

We look forward to 2015 with great anticipation.

Please be safe and have a Happy New Year.

Selfie Challenge Winners!

The Broome County Board of Elections would like to congratulate our selfie challenge winners!

We got so many great contributions that it was difficult to pick just one winner.  So we broke it up into 3 categories.  Single, Multi, and Funny, for those of you who took it less seriously.

On to our winners!

In the single category, the award goes to @Bambry :

For the multi-shot winners, its Sara and Keith Godoy:

and for the funniest contribution, we liked Jevin:

Each winner will receive a $25.00 Shutterfly gift certificate.

Congratulations to our winners!

Absentee Testing and Counting

Today we test our Absentee Counting System in preparation for next Thursday's Absentee and Affidavit Counting.

To reiterate an earlier blog post - every valid ballot we receive gets counted.  No matter how close or distant the race may be.  If you voted, and voted properly, your vote is tallied.

We take that very seriously.

There are a couple of close races in which Absentees will play a role.  We will keep you posted here as to how those races turn out.

Have a great weekend!

Count them all!

One of the questions we have gotten the most so far this election (through our contact forms and emails) is "Are absentees counted?".  There is an internet rumor out there that absentees are only counted in a close race.  

Well, that's just not how it works.  

Every absentee ballot lawfully received by the Board of Elections is counted and absentee totals are added to voting machine totals to come up with the final tally per race.  "Lawfully received" means within the prescribed 

This primary election was unique, due to the last-minute addition of the Republican State Senator primary.
