‘Trump factor’ urges voters to cast ballots

Residents along Hudson Valley show out in numbers for important races


RYE – Some voters alluded to a “Trump factor” as the reason that brought them to the election polls throughout the Hudson Valley, despite it being a rainy evening on Tuesday.

"I need to get Democrats back in because 45 is just not representing our country, and we're a united country before he stepped in,” said Angela Monti of Rye, speaking about her feelings in regards to President Donald Trump. “So, we need to make this move; we need to step out and vote."

In Yonkers, on the other hand, most voters pointed to one specific county position that has their attention on Election Day.

“I think the county executive race is pretty important to take a look at and focus on today," said Yonkers resident Zachary Paul.

While Westchester County voters decide between incumbent Rob Astorino and challenger George Latimer, voters in Rockland County also have their eye on the county executive race.

"I just want to make sure it remains a place I can raise my family and someplace that we're happy to be in and that works for us. I'm happy for Ed Day, and I hope he remains in office," says Jennifer Ekizian of New City.
