Seneca County looks to keep early voting site in Waterloo despite new state law

Seneca County officials are pushing to keep their only early voting location in Waterloo, the county seat, countering a New York state law that mandates such sites be located in the largest municipality, which in this case is Seneca Falls.

Election officials tell the Finger Lakes Times they have prepared a legislative bill aimed at allowing early voting to remain at the County Office Building in Waterloo, which has historically hosted the polling.


The county Board of Supervisors backed the proposed legislation on April 23, highlighting local preference for the Waterloo location over the Seneca Falls site used in recent elections, including last fall’s and the March Presidential primary.

The early voting site had temporarily moved to the Health and Human Services Building in Seneca Falls, just a short distance across the boundary from the Waterloo location. The bill awaits approval from the state’s legislative chambers.
