In Sept. 10 primary, 33 of 52 polling stations in St. Lawrence County will be open
Polling places in all 32 townships in St. Lawrence County and in the City of Ogdensburg will be open on Primary Day, Sept. 10, for the Republican primary to choose among three candidates for coroner.
Only 33 of all 52 regular polling places in the county will be open for primary voters, because of the usually much lower turnout for primaries than in a general election.Steven M. Carey, incumbent June H. Wood, and Kevin J. Crosby all seek the GOP line in the November election to take the one open position among the three coroners in the county.
Aside from that one county-wide primary, all other primary contests are on the town level.
The most sought-after position appears to be Colton Superintendent of Highways.
Two Republicans, Justin Johnson and Kevin Hawley, the incumbent, and Conservatives Harold Bush and Brion J. Stowe, all seek their parties’ nominations for November ballot lines.
In Morristown, two people are seeking the endorsement of both the Independence Party and Conservative Party, Lisa J. Whitmarsh and G. Thomas Bertrand, Jr., to be on both ballot lines for town justice in November.
Other Republican primaries are in Clare, Edwards, Fowler, Gouverneur, Russell and Waddington.
There are no nominations contested by Democrats.
By not opening all regular polling places in the county, it will keep down the expense of poll workers, transportation and setup of machines, according to Democratic St. Lawrence County Elections Commissioner Jennie Bacon.
The polls for the primary will be open from noon to 9 p.m. Sept. 10.
