Nearly 100 public offices up for election in Niagara County

About 100 positions for public office are up for election this November in Niagara County. Tuesday, June 6 marks the first day for signing the designating petition to become a candidate.

The petition form is available on the New York State Board of Elections or the Niagara County Board of Elections website. To get on the ballot 5 percent of the people who live in the corresponding district must sign the petition, said Lora Allen, Niagara County Democratic elections commissioner.

Deadlines are approaching for candidates to file the petitions.

Primary elections will be held Sept. 12 and the general election is on Nov. 7. The last day for voters to register to be qualified to vote in the primaries is Aug. 18.

“We have pretty good turnout. It depends on if it’s a race that people really want to go vote for, they’ll go, if it’s not then they stay home,” Allen said.

Here are the positions up for election alongside their terms in years:
