LAFAYETTE, N.Y. (Democracy in Action) — Lafayette residents visited the Office Commons Building on North Route 11 to vote in the Election.

Residents in this community voiced their opinions about voting today.

“The clerk actually was one of the main reasons I came out today,” said Tammy Aldrich, a Lafayette resident. “She put in a newsletter saying that ‘Think about your kids future and get in there and vote for your kids,’ and that was really my inspiration.”

“Fifty percent of the registered voters in Lafayette already voted by 4 p.m.,” according to the Election commissioner.

Another resident felt that voting in this election was important for her family’s future.

“I think with this election it has brought out some concerns, and I think that after this election, I think that our world is going to need some healing, our country is going to need some healing,” said Ann Schaefer, a Lafayette resident.
