Broome County Board of Elections

The Broome County Board of Elections, in its present structure, was created in 1954 to manage and maintain the County's voter registry, its record of public officials, and to certify and publish election results.  In 1995, through consolidation, it became responsible for administering all other aspects of elections operations as it conducts national, state, county, city, town, and some local village elections for nearly 140,000 Active & Inactive Voters within Broome County.
