Election 2022

Voter’s Guide 2022: Candidates, endorsements, polling places

Voters across Suffolk County will head to the polls tomorrow, Nov. 8, to cast ballots deciding a long list of contested races and propositions.

In Southold, voters will elect candidates for Congress, state Senate and Assembly as well as decide on a proposal to create a half percent real estate transfer tax that would be deposited in a community housing fund to address the local affordable housing crisis.

There are two additional ballot proposals that would address environmental initiatives throughout New York State and set term limits for the offices of county executive, county legislator and county comptroller.

Voters will also cast ballots on several statewide elections this year, headlined by the big ticket item: incumbent Democrat Kathy Hochul against Republican challenger Lee Zeldin in the race for governor.

Beyond the gubernatorial race, there are contested races for U.S. Senate, state Attorney General, state comptroller, Suffolk County clerk and county comptroller.

There are several judge positions on the ballot, with most candidates running with the backing of the Democratic, Republican and Conservative parties.
