Remember to flip your ballot in November. Since 2008 when New York started using paper optical scan ballots all referendums have been printed on the back. It’s important to note that since this year you have the once in 20 year question on whether or not to hold a constitutional convention. Ontario County Democratic Election Commissioner Charlie Evangelista says ballot measures go on the back because of space considerations.
Evangelista and other election officials want to dispel the social media rumor that if you the question blank it turns into a yes vote . That is not the case.
Sample ballots will be available on election day for you to inspect before you go in and vote .
