Election Day

Today is of course, Election Day, so regardless of your political ties or affiliations, it is not only your right to vote, but your responsibility. So head out before the snow flies and support your candidates.

Since we didn't have the opportunity to look at all of the races, we'll cover a few more here.

Judge Batt holds off a spirited challenge from Maria DiPasquale for Niagara County Family Court Judge.

In the race for Niagara Falls City Court, Robert Merino cruises to victory over Maria Massaro.

Candra Thomason has fought a valiant fight for Mayor of Niagara Falls, but a lack of funds and sheer numbers in the city work against her. Dyster pulls 60%.

Also in Niagara Falls, Renae Kimble, Sean O'Connor and Dennis Virtuoso all win handily.

The shocker of the Leg races will be Tony Nemi upsetting Harry Apolito. With four lines and literally tons of mail to go along with Nemi's strong name recognition, he pulls out a 125 margin win over Apolito.

Updegrove and McNall also win, shifting the balance of power in county politics back to Lockport.

In NT, Smolinski narrowly wins, and Wojtaszek wins comfortably.

The one race still too close to call is Somerset Supervisor. Logic says that Sweeney, with both major lines, should win handily. But Meyers has stepped up his game in recent weeks and may snag the win on the minor lines.

Any way they fall, remember, you can't bitch if you don't vote. Good luck to all of the candidates.
