News Politics: For a few congressional and New York State Senate seats, Tuesday is primary day in New York. The newly created 24th Congressional District in New York will have a three-candidate Republican primary in the Finger Lakes area. Wayne and Cayuga counties are now entirely included in that district. Following all the delays and wrangling over proper redistricting procedures, this is the second primary this summer. Republican registered voters in Wayne and Cayuga counties will help determine who the Republican congressional candidate for the 24th District will be on that November’s ballot according to the state’s redrew political lines.

“So far the early voting turnout has been very dismal,” said Wayne County BOE Commissioner John Zornow. “It’s a Republican federal primary. We are a county of 90,000 residents with 23,000 registered Republicans, so it was not a good turnout. People have a tendency to only vote in major elections but you have to make yourself available and follow the state rules and that’s it.”Polls are open until 9 p.m. on Tuesday. The winner of this Republican primary will face Democrat Steven Holden in the November election.

In Wayne County, the Republican Board of Elections commissioner says so far, early primary voting has been disappointing. Only 105 registered Republicans in Wayne County voted in the nine days of early voting. He says in the June primary, only 150 people turned out early to vote. The BOE cost, he says, was $70,000 to run all those sites. He is hoping voters show up on primary day.

The 24th District is considered solidly Republican, so the winner of the GOP Primary will likely win the general election and serve as the next member of Congress.
