For the first time, New York State has allowed for early voting.

Polls were closed Monday November 4, but are opening up today starting at 6 a.m. and will close at 9 p.m.

Officials said roughly a quarter million ballots were cast around the state between October 26 and November 3.

With no federal or statewide contests on the ballot, officials says turnout is expected to be low, but they are hoping this election will be seen as a rehearsal for next year’s blockbuster Presidential contest.
