A number of candidates took to the stage in Putnam County Wednesday in races ranging from county legislator to state Senate.

Putnam County voters have a few local races of note to decide November 4. There is a race for Putnam County Executive, pitting incumbent Republican MaryEllen Odell against longtime Democratic County Legislator Sam Oliverio. Odell says it’s possible voter turnout could be high given a number of contentious races, including for state Senate seats.
