Erie County, in very-upstate western New York, has a population of close to a million people and includes the city of Buffalo and the surrounding region. It has a County Executive, currently a Democrat, and an eleven-person county legislature, each member of which is elected by district biennially. Right now, there’s a 6-5 split in the legislature favoring Republicans, and the elections are this coming Tuesday for all 11 seats.
In the past few days, multiple special elections have been given election dates. This will now allow us to track and update when candidates qualify and Ready2Vote can promote out any and all Democratic candidates.
