Independence Party voters in Mount Kisco will be able to vote on a county legislative seat primary on Tuesday, according to the village manager's office.
The primary involves incumbent Peter Harckahm, a North Salem Democrat who received the party's endorsement, against Andrea Rendo, a Lewisboro Republican who forced a primary election through what is called the Opportunity to Ballot process. However, while Harckham's name will be printed on the ballots, Rendo's will not be, which means that she will need write-in votes to win.
New York, candidates for office can run with multiple parties and get
each of their spaces on November election ballots.
The primary is only for Independence Party members. A list of Mount Kisco's polling sites can be found on the village's website.
No Primaries in New Castle
Meanwhile, it will be quiet in neighboring New Castle because there are no primaries scheduled, according to Town Clerk Jill Shapiro. While New Castle has fully contested town board elections and a town justice election from two slates, neither of them are seeking to gain more party lines for the November election.
