NORWICH – The federal primary election takes place today, with the polls opening in Chenango County’s municipalities at noon. Voting takes place until 9 p.m.
The only local action is in the 22nd District, where U.S. Congressman Richard L. Hanna, of Barneveld, and Michael J. Kicinski Sr., of Earlville, vie for the GOP nomination.
The Chenango County Republican Committee unanimously endorsed Hanna in April. Hanna is also backed by the Independence Party of New York State and received support from the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund.
