“I think its very important to meet the people, be able to talk to them, see if they got any concerns, talk about some of the issues in town instead of teaching people how to write-in their name on a ballot,” said John Accorso.
That's exactly what Victor Republicans did Sunday at the Thristy Turtle Sports Bar. “First of all its a very simple process, secondly there are inspectors to help you every step of the way, and thirdly we've produced some wonderful materials that have really been great, and that’s the feedback from our voters.
It’s been really helpful in showing them how to do a write in,” said Town Supervisor Leslie Bamann who’s up for re-election. Republicans currently hold all the key seats in Victor but Democrats believe two board seats could be up for grabs. “They want to stay the course and look what's happened in the last 16 years, we've had the plume come up and they want to stay the course,” said Accorso.
In Victor, Republicans out number Democrats three to one. Still, Town Supervisor Leslie Bamann says their not taking anything for granted. “My concern always in a election like this is to get people to the polls. Showing them how to do the write in they've had information they can ask an inspector, it's still about getting people to the ballot box,” said Bamann.
