News from the Polls

Early voting began over the weekend and continues throughout the week. The early voting polling places--401 State Street in Hudson and the Martin H. Glynn Municipal Building, 3211 Church Street, in Valatie--opened today at noon and will remain open until 8 p.m. On Saturday and Sunday, the Hudson Democrats and the Columbia County Democrats were out on the corner of Fourth and Warren streets reminding people that early voting had begun and a polling place was just two blocks away.

The efforts seem to have paid off. Statistics from the Board of Elections, provided to Gossips by Sam Hodge, chair of the Columbia County Democratic Committee, indicate that 72 percent of the voters who cast their ballots over the weekend were registered Democrats--more than six times more Democrats than Republicans. Here are the cumulative numbers from Saturday and Sunday.

Of course, as news reports regularly remind us, Republicans tend not to do early voting but traditionally vote on Election Day.

Here's the early voting schedule for today and the rest of the week.
  • Monday, October 31, noon to 8 p.m.
  • Tuesday, November 1, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Wednesday, November 2, noon to 8 p.m.
  • Thursday, November 3, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Friday, November 4, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Saturday, November 5, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Sunday, November 6, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
