DEWITT, N.Y. – (DiA) – The Dewitt Town Hall is one of over dozens 150 polling places in Onondaga County. The town hall has been seeing a slow, but steady stream of voters since opening its doors. Site manager, Timothy Bahia, says there have been a little over 100 ballots logged as of noon today. He has been working elections for 11 years and loves helping spread awareness about democracy. He feels it is important for younger people to participate and exercise their right to vote. The demographic for this area is in their 50s or 60s, but Bahia wishes more of the younger generation would come out to vote.
“One of the reasons the voter turnout has probably been slow is due to the absentee ballots as well as the early voting,” Bahia said.
Voting will continue until 9 o’clock tonight.
