Ballot Drawing Places Candidates Order for Erie County Primary

Posted: Updated:

The long list of candidates running for office in Erie County appeared at the courthouse Friday, for the ballot drawing.

The drawing will determine the position, of each candidate's name on the ballot.

They recommend researching the candidates on each ballot.

The final list of ballot positions will be available on the county's website, in the next few days:
