Onondaga County Elections Commissioners struggle to get people to polls – WRVO

Democratic Elections Commissioner Dustin Czarny agrees. He says these local elections tend to only bring out a little more than one in five registered voters, compared to national races.

“National Elections will have 50, 70 or 80 percent turnout,” Czarny said. “So if people realize that the elections could really make a difference and could really effect their local lives are these local years, these odd number years. That would hopefully generate a little more turnout.”
