Both Frankfort and Mohawk say they had better voter turnouts than last year. And most of the mayoral candidates held meet and greets outside of the polls.
"Some change on the village board, some change in politics, some change in policies, some new faces," says Richard Adams Jr.
Change - that's Candidate Richard Adams Jr.'s motto. He's running for Frankfort mayor against incumbent Moracco and he says change is what the village needs.
"I'd like to start conversations with neighboring communities, start working on some of these shared services, we need to be a little more cautious on spending, we need to spend not on wants but on needs as it is right now," says Richard Adams Jr.
But Moracco has served Frankfort for 8 years. He's hoping to start his third term and he says his experience is very important
"With the years that I have as mayor, when I go down to Albany, people already know me and that speaks volumes. We are right now the lowest amongst tax rates in Ilion, Herkimer, Mohawk, Dolgeville, we pride ourselves in keeping that. These are the things when you have a strong administration, and board that supports you, these are things that we're able to get done," says Frank Moracco, incumbent mayor of Frankfort.
In Mohawk, incumbent Irene Sweet is facing a political newcomer, 28- year-old Jim Baron, for the mayor's seat.
"I've lived here for a long time now, I met a lot of people along the way. My board and I work very hard for anything in the village and it's my home and I care a lot about it," says Irene Sweet, incumbent mayor of Mohawk.
Although we didn't get the chance to speak with the young challenger Jim Baron, Irene Sweet tells us she's glad that young people are showing interest in politics and there community.
"If you're not voting then I really think that you shouldn't complain about how things are, unless you come out and voice your opinion. Voting is really important in that respect," says Bob Harris, Frankfort voter.
And it's not too late to get your vote in. Voting booths will be open until 9pm. We'll have results as they become available later tonight.
