GREENBURGH, N.Y. — Elections are still a month away, but Greenburgh residents should be aware of what to expect once they step inside the voting booth.
There will be several other decisions to make other than choosing the next U.S. president, including who you want representing New York in the Senate and Westchester County Court.
Two candidates representing Greenburgh's districts, both incumbents, will be running unopposed this year: Andrea Stewart-Cousins (D), running for Senator for the 35th District, and Thomas Abinanti (D), running for State Assemblyman for District 92.
Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D) will also be running for her 13th consecutive term representing District 17. The incumbent will compete against Rye Town Supervisor Joseph Carvin (R) and Francis Morganthaler (WTP).
In the county courts, Judge David Zuckerman (D) will be challenging Judge Matthew Troy III (R) for a seat. Zuckerman is the Town Justice of Port Chester, and Troy is the Acting Village Justice of Port Chester.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D) is the incumbent in the race for junior U.S. Senator. Before being appointed to the Senate in 2009, Gillibrand was elected to the House of Representative twice to represent New York's 20th Congressional District.
