Local Elections

Local elections will be happening everywhere.  Check out if your mayor, supervisor, city or town council, or school board are up for election.  Some communities elect highway supervisors or town justices on off years.  If you contact your County Board of Elections or Auditor, they will be able to tell you which offices are up for election in 2019. (Make sure to note the election date for these - they often happen at weird times of year!)


While off year elections may not seem as important as even year elections, they can be engaging and a good way to get into voting practice for 2020!
