WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - Election day is November 2nd, but registered voters have a chance to cast their ballots early, starting today.

Some took advantage Saturday morning at the Jefferson County Office Building in Watertown.

On the ballot this year, a host of local races. Voters in Watertown and Ogdensburg will select members of their respective City Councils. There are a handful of races for county legislature in Jefferson and Lewis counties. Throughout the north country, voters will head to the polls to vote for town and village officials, along with highway superintendents.

“I encourage everyone to come out” said Jefferson County democratic elections commissioner, Michelle LaFave. “These races tend to be the least voted on but the have the most impact in everybody’s day-to-day lives. So, in that sense, they’re more important, than say, President.”
