House primary vote is today 

Starting at noon, Democrats across most of Monroe County will be able to cast their ballots in the 25th Congressional District primary.  Democrats living in Hamlin, Wheatland, Rush, Mendon, and the southwest corner of Clarkson aren't in the district and can't vote in the race.

Former television journalist Rachel Barnhart, City Council Vice President Adam McFadden, State Assembly Majority Leader Joe Morelle, and Brighton Town Board member and activisit Robin Wilt are seeking the Democratic line on the November ballot. The Democratic candidate will face Republican Jim Maxwell, a neurosurgeon who's putting a lot of his own money into his campaign, for the seat previously held by Louise Slaughter, who died earlier this year.

CITY's candidate profiles are available here, and our endorsement in the race is available here.

If Morelle doesn't win today's primary, he still has the Working Families Party, Independence Party, and Women's Equality Party lines. So he'll be on the November general election ballot regardless.

Polls for today's election close at 9 p.m. Only registered Democrats can vote in this primary. Anyone with questions about their eligibility or their polling place, can use a voter information tool provided by Monroe County at

Anyone in need of a ride to the polls can fill out the form located at this link or contact Monroe County Democratic Committee headquarters at (585) 434-1620.

Voters experiencing any problems or issues at polling sites can contact the state Attorney General's Office at(800)771-7755 or by e-mailing
