I would not vote in a presidential election again until 1992.
Though you may not be able to vote twice, and an Obama victory in the presidential race in New York is assured, there are several other reasons to vote in the Oneonta area.
In Otsego and Delaware counties, there are contests for U.S. senator, the representative in the 19th Congressional District, state Senate and Assembly seats, and numerous county and town positions.
Don’t waste your vote by not casting one.
