Tonight members of the Government Operations Meeting voted 5-4 on whether or not to leave it up to the voters to decide whether or not to move the Board of Elections location.
Legislators got a tour Wednesday afternoon to look at what would have been the new home of the Board of Elections and the county's voting machines.
The BOE calls Utica's Union Station home, and the voting machines are in a separate leased property on Broad St.
County Legislator, Mike Waterman says the move would have been cost efficient.
"It's a definite tax dollars savings for the taxpayers. It's something we've been looking into for probably well over a year," said Waterman.
While some felt the old Federal Reserve Building would be a better space for the Board of Elections, some didn't completely see eye to eye.
"I believe that this building is definitely suitable or the machines, but the accessibility to our constituents would be very difficult. I myself had difficulties finding the building," said County Legislator, David Gordon.
