Early voting begins in Broome County

first_imgJOHNSON CITY (WBNG) — Saturday was the first day of early Primary voting in Broome County. Linda Buman, a poll volunteer at the Broome County Public Library, said early voting expands opportunities for people who can’t get to the polls on the day of the primary. “My polling place was condensed to five or six different polling places in one spot on Main Street…I thought getting out when the crowds are light would be best for everyone right now,” he said. With the virus in mind, Thomas Davis of Binghamton said he decided to head out early to help reduce crowd sizes on Election Day. Miller said not voting isn’t an option.

The Primary Election day in New York State is June 23. Buman says early voting is especially important this election cycle. center_img “You wind up being in a long line and we’ve found it much easier cause you can avoid the line,” Yvonne Miller said. Buman stressed that whether you choose to vote early or on Primary Election Day, keep in mind what voting means. Polls opened at noon at the Broome County Public Library and the Oakdale Mall. “It makes it a lot easier if they want to come in and vote in person as opposed to doing a mail in or affidavit ballot,” she says. “It’s our right first of all, and if you don’t vote, don’t complain. That’s how I feel,” said Yvonne Miller. Lloyd and Yvonne Miller told 12 News they were happy to have the opportunity to vote early and beat the crowds on Primary Election Day. “This is the opportunity to have a say. Voting is your choice. It potentially affects your future, and your kid’s future,” she said.last_img read more

With no fall season, Binghamton women’s soccer begins training

first_img“We’re such a close knit team, we’re best friends. When we were at home we were zooming a lot trying to stay close but it is nothing compared to being back together,” said McKnight. “Just to be back, getting on the ball again and getting to see one another, it means a lot,” said Binghamton head coach Neel Bhattacharjee. “We’ve been waiting on this day since March, just counting down the days until we can get back on the field,” said Binghamton sophomore Olivia Mcknight. No matter what protocols they have to follow, the girls are happy to just be seeing each other in person again. For now, the girls are training in small groups and are easing back into game shape. “Us being together, that is just a big part of our team, you know we talk about a family environment and how important team chemistry is and that is just hard to do over zoom,” said Bhattacharjee. Protocols include wearing a mask at all times on the field and keeping their space during training. center_img The team is looking at these extra practices as a positive thing, with their eyes now set on one thing.” VESTAL (WBNG) – For the first time this fall, the Binghamton women’s soccer team is back on the field. “Right now we’re going to get touches on the ball, right now that’s a big component for us is working on the technical piece,” said Bhattacharjee. “It’s just been a fluid transition,” said McKnight. “It’s definitely weird but having to do these protocols since March you start to get used to it and we’re just blessed that we are even practicing at all.” “Our goal is to win an America East Championship in the spring, that’s our focus,” said McKnight.last_img read more
