Your vote could decide today's primary.
With previous primaries coming down to a handful of votes, that statement is no exaggeration as voters head to the polls for today's primary elections.
For Port Chester residents, the race to watch is between current Port Chester Trustee Daniel Brakewood and Harrison businessman Mark Jaffe.
Both men seek the Democratic nomination for the District 6 county legislator seat, which will be vacated later this year when long-time County Legislator Marty Rogowsky retires after 13 years.
The district encompasses Port Chester, Rye Brook and Harrison and includes some 55,000 constituents.
Jaffe, of West Harrison, is the CEO of the Greater NY Chamber of Commerce; Brakewood, of Port Chester, is a familiar face to Port Chester residents, having served five years on the Board of Trustees.
Jaffe has touted his business experience while running on issues like job creation and improved local education services. Brakewood points to his experience as an elected official, and says he wants to help reduce political bickering at the county level while finding more efficient ways to deliver essential services.
Polls are open until 9 p.m. this evening. Local polling places include the Don Bosco Center, Holy Rosary/Corpus Christi School, JKF Magnet School, King Street School, and Park Avenue School.
