New York voters will head to the polls Tuesday for the state’s primary election. Polls close at 9 p.m. While there are no primaries happening in Tompkins County, there are some races in other parts of our region.

Broome County

In Broome County, there are no primaries for the Democratic or Working Families parties. But several local races across the county have Republican and Conservative primaries on the ballot.

In the race for the Broome County Legislature’s 2nd District, incumbent Scott Baker is taking on challenger Carolyn Price in a Conservative Party primary.

The towns of Fenton, Windsor and Sanford all have Republican and Conservative primaries for local elections.

Cortland County

In some parts of Cortland County, registered Democrats will vote for candidates vying for the 22nd Congressional District.

Voters will choose between Democrats John Mannion and Sarah Klee Hood. The winner will face Republican Rep. Brandon Williams in November.

New York approved a new set of congressional district maps in February. The maps added the northern half of Cortland County, including the city of Cortland, to the 22nd District. You can view the state's 2024 congressional district map here.
