On August 23 there will be a SPECIAL ELECTION to fill the Congressional seat vacated by Tom Reed in the old district
23. There are two candidates, Max Della Pia, Democrat, and Joseph Sempolinski, Republican. All Tompkins County registered voters, whether they have a party affiliation or not, can vote in this election. Tompkins County voters will be given a ballot just for that election. The winner of the Special Election will immediately become our Congressional representative in the US House of Representatives for the old district 23 UNTIL the term expires on 1/3/23.
Also on August 23 there will be a PRIMARY ELECTION for State Senator in our new district 52 and for Congress in our new district 19. These races will be on a different ballot, and only Tompkins County voters registered as Democrat can vote.
Winners of the primary election will run in the GENERAL ELECTION on November 8, together with Republican and third party candidates. Their 2-yr terms BEGIN on January 3.
These elections are important.
