Why Moving Village Elections From Spring to Fall Could Save Money, Boost Turnout – Spectrum News

What village officials can control though is when the election is held. Onondaga County elections commissioner Dustin Czarny says only about about 10 to 15 percent of the population votes in village elections. He believes that number would increase with a fall election.

“The villages would have zero costs to run their election, whereas they pay for all their election costs now, and the other big advantage is moving it to November will align it where when people are focused on the elections so better turnout as well,” said Czarny.
