Matt Bathrick reports in the Columbia Paper residents in two Claverack election districts will be voting at a new location beginning this fall. Polling sites for Election Districts 3 and 4 will now be at the Nutrition Center for the county Office for the Aging on Main St. in Philmont. District 3 previously voted at Claverack Town Hall in Mellenville; District 4 voters went to Philmont Village Hall. The changes were made for economical reasons and because the Nutrition Site is more accessible and will make the process easier for voters and auditors. The move will save an estimated $1,000 to $2,500 per year, according to the Columbia County Board of Elections. Read the full story in the Columbia Paper.
