A Mere Handful Of Voters Likely To Decide Who Represents 125,000 Bronxites In Albany

In CityLimits, Rolando Cruz, Jeanmarie Evelly and Jarrett Murphy report “(t)he election next Tuesday is one of four occurring in the city, along with a State Senate race in the Bronx and Assembly races in Manhattan and Queens, the latter of which is uncontested. Seven other contests will take place elsewhere in the state. A Westchester County race in is the spotlight because it could shape which party controls the State Senate.

If history is any guide, however, most of the special elections will see very low turnout. A special election held last May to fill a State Senate seat in Manhattan drew fewer than 8,900 votes in a district with 202,000 active voters—good for a turnout rate of 4.3 percent.”
