Early voting starts in Rensselaer County
WNYT reports that early voting for the primary election began June 12, and in Rensselaer County it was the same, despite a judge ordering the Rensselaer County Board of Elections to put another polling place in Troy. Instead, Rensselaer County is appealing the decision. Activists gathered in Troy June 11 to protest the appeal. Zaquetta Jones from the Justice Center of Rensselaer County explained how elections officials are dragging their feet. PLAY BRIEF AUDIO CLIP HERE.
