Election Day is Here

NY – Democratic candidate for Governor Carl McCall was making a last minute whirlwind tour of the state last night to get more support.

But polls indicate that Governor Pataki, who ran from rally to rally with his son Owen, is still firmly in the lead.

Independence Party candidate Thomas Golisano spent the evening in Schenectady talking with supporters about special interest funding, one of his major campaign themes this year.

Aside from the governor's race, there are elections today for all of New York's 29 congressional seats.

There are also elections in both houses of the State Legislature.

Voters will have to choose between Democrat Alan Hevesi and Republican John Faso for State comptroller. Experts say that could be a close race. Hevesi was a former New York City comptroller. Faso was the Assembly Minority Leader for many years.

Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, a Democrat, is expected to win a second term over relative unknown state judge Dora Irizarry.

The polls are open until 9 p.m.
