Early voting did not see the same turnout as the 2020 elections, but that was a presidential election year.
But there are a number of hotly contested Democratic Party primaries this week, including that for mayor. Incumbent Lovely Warren is seeking a third term and she faces a challenger from City Councilmember Malik Evans.
At the David F. Gantt Community Center in Rochester on Sunday, Willie Young placed her ballot with her 94-year-old mother Marie Young. Young said she has appreciated the convenience of early voting but this time around she was split on some of the candidates.
“I love them both. I love Lovely Warren and Malik Evans so I love them both," Young said, adding that she is looking forward to Tuesday night’s results.
There are a number of other primaries on Tuesday’s ballot including those for Rochester City Council and school board, and some for the Monroe County Legislature.
Polls on Tuesday will be open from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. CITY will post results as they come come in. Our media partner, WXXI, will have results and analysis starting at 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday on AM 1370, FM 107.5, streaming at wxxinews.org with updates on our Twitter feed.
