YORKTOWN, N.Y.A steady pace of Yorktown residents walked into the board room of Yorktown Town Hall Tuesdaythe very room where their elected officials will sit.
Resident Bill Schneider said the biggest issue that got him out to vote were expenses.
The towns expenses just seem out of control, he said. And while its not just a local issue, its national, its global, I think we need to get things under control and thats why I came out to vote today.
Schneider said while he usually votes in his local elections, that issue is what really got him out to vote.
Inside the Town Hall board room where so many decisions are made and where future board members voted into office today will sit, volunteers Isabel Cavanagh, Cathie Wojcik and Jenne Riddel smiled as they assisted voters.
Riddel, who has been a volunteer and worked the elections since 1989, said shes seen definite changes, both in the elections and local government since she first started.
Well for one, the voting machines are much much different, she said. And, I would have to say there are more people out to vote.
Kavanagh, who has volunteered in the past, said they knew when to expect another rush of voters.
Its been good, weve had quite a lot of people so far, she said. It will pick up again though after school and when people get home from work. Thats when well see a lot of people.
