Erie County public offices up for election this year

Voters in Erie County will get to decide who to elect to nearly 150 public offices in November, filling posts that range from public library trustees to Supreme Court justices.

Residents who want to run for these elected jobs in the cities of Buffalo, Lackawanna and Tonawanda and surrounding towns and the village of Kenmore can still get on the ballot, but deadlines are fast approaching.

Political parties are endorsing candidates for various positions now, and candidates will begin collecting signatures on nominating petitions Tuesday, June 6 so that they can get on ballots.

Primary election day is Sept. 12. The general election is Nov. 7.

For voters, Aug. 18 is the last day to register to vote and be eligible to vote in the primary election; Oct. 13 is the last day for the general election.

Here's a list of the elected positions up for election:
