WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - It's Election Day 2019. Polls across northern New York opened at 6 a.m.

Watertown voters are picking a mayor and council members.

Typical turnout for a mayor's race in the last couple of elections has been about 4,000 votes. It's possible that this year's three-way contest between Jeff Smith, Allison Crossman, and Cody Horbacz will push that number higher.

Aside from voting for mayor, Watertown voters are picking two city council members and deciding on revisions to the city charter.

Voters in the town of Alexandria are deciding whether to buy the old Bonnie Castle Recreation Center.

Voters are also picking a Jefferson County Court judge.

There's a three-way race for treasurer in Lewis County, as well as contests for the district one and four Legislature seats.

St. Lawrence County voters are picking a new county clerk.

A mayor and city council members will be selected in Ogdensburg.

Voters in the town of Massena are deciding whether to turn Massena Memorial Hospital over to St. Lawrence Health Systems.

Polls close at 9 p.m.

Watch results from across the north country and live reports from the Watertown mayor’s race starting at 10 p.m. on Your North Country Fox (channel 2 on Spectrum and 28 on most other services) and then at 11 p.m. on 7 News Tonight.
