Picente: Board of Elections Procedures Need Improvement

Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente, Jr. submitted a letter to Board of Legislator’s Chairman Gerald Fiorini requesting that a committee investigate the conduct and procedures of the Board of Elections. 

The letter comes after results from Oneida County elections were not made available until after 11:00pm on election night. Picente called this “unacceptable,” and went on to say that he felt “embarrassed by the delay in Oneida County results.”

According to Article II, Section 202 (i) of the Oneida County Charter, the Board of Legislators have the authority to convene a committee for the purpose of investigating the conduct and procedures of the Board of Elections.
