Polls are open 6:00AM – 9:00PM. There are three propositions on the ballot: Prop. 1 – The Constitutional Convention: Every 20 years, New Yorkers have the chance to vote whether to hold a constitutional convention.Supporters say it’s an opportunity to reform unethical practices in Albany that have led to both former legislative leaders facing corruption charges. Nine former associates of Governor Cuomo have also been charged with crimes including bribery and bid-rigging. Opponents – including the state’s major unions, environmentalists, gun rights groups and the Conservative Party – say the New York’s constitution includes many rights.

Where Binghamton Mayoral Candidates Stand On Regional Issues

Play

Next Tuesday, Binghamton voters choose between Republican incumbent Rich David and Democrat Tarik Abdelazim for their next mayor. WSKG’s Gabe Altieri talked with both of the candidates about issues that affect not only Binghamton, but communities throughout the Southern Tier.  Blight and Opioids: On Blight: When a property is foreclosed on, the county takes control, then auctions it off. Tarik Abdelazim doesn’t like this process. He says the people bidding on these properties are often slumlords who aren’t interested in revitalizing them. Abdelazim, instead, wants to move all the properties over to the land bank and only sell to landlords without code violations at their properties over the last two years.
