Reminder: Feb. 5 is primary day

Super Tuesday is fast approaching, and the Onondaga County Board of Elections wants you to get out and vote.

The last day to register to vote in the primaries was Jan. 11, 25 days before the election. There are 89,621 registered Democrats and 90,089 registered Republicans in Onondaga County. Voters also have the option of choosing up to five delegates. If the candidate of you choosing has delegates, they will appear on the same voting line as the candidate. For example, Hillary Clinton will have five delegates on her voting line, and Barack Obama will have one. There are no referendums on the primary ballot. Referendums are limited to general elections.

There will be two machines at each location, one for each party. Polls are open from noon until 9 p.m. For more information, such as where your assigned voting location is, to see a sample ballot, or to inquire about an absentee ballot, visit the Onondaga County Board of Election's web site: ongov.net/board_of_elections.
