MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. — In-person voter registration ends on Oct. 12, and November's election is approaching. The Mount Kisco Daily Voice is here to show you who is on the ballot this season, where in town to vote and how to register if you have not already done so.
Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6, for voters to cast their ballots in the race between President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney, as well as in U.S. congressional races and local races.
In the 2012 U.S. Senate race, Republican Wendy Long, a Manhattan attorney, will compete against incumbent U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D).
Moving from Republican Rep. Nan Hayworth’s 19th District into the newly redrawn 17th Congressional District, Mount Kisco voters will choose between Joe Carvin, the Republican supervisor of Rye, or U.S. Rep. Nita Lowey, D-Harrison. Lowey formerly represented the 18th Congressional District but now represents the 17th due to redistricting.
Mount Kisco voters will choose between incumbent state Sen. Greg Ball (R) and Democrat Justin Wagner for state Senate District 40.
