Niagara County residents headed to the polls in record numbers this year. Although that is primarily due to a presidential race, the additional voter turnout aided candidates in local races as well. Notably, Niagara County had a number of competitive races for District Attorney, County Court Judge, and Sheriff.

Local attorney Brian Seaman squared off against attorney John Ceretto II for District Attorney. According to unofficial results, Brian Seaman emerged successful by a tally of 51,133 to 31,145.

Current District Attorney Caroline Wojtaszek battled attorney Michael Benedict in the race for County Court Judge in what turned out to be a close primary election held in June. According to unofficial results, Caroline Wojtaszek emerged successful by a tally of 67,797 to 14,650.

Acting Sheriff Michael Filicetti faced Brian Grear for Niagara County Sheriff. According to unofficial results, Michael Filicetti emerged successful by a tally of 76,351 to 6,808.

There were also races for the NYS Assembly and Senate, but both candidates did not have a challenger. Thus, Assemblyman Angelo Morinello and State Senator Rob Ortt will be re-elected.
