Chautauqua County Legislature

What We Do

  • We discuss and study issues of local, national, state and regional concern.
  • We inform ourselves, legislators and the general public about the results of our research.
  • We lobby for passage of laws we support and for the defeat of those we oppose, based on League positions.
  • We monitor elections and government activities.

Did You Know?

League members worked successfully for enactment of the Social Security and Food and Drug Acts, as well as the TVA. In 1934, when federal and state government agencies were hiring thousands of employees to administer the new social and eco-nomic laws, the League launched a nationwide campaign in support of the merit system for selecting government personnel. In those years the League was the only national organization acting consistently for the merit system. And due, at least in part, to League efforts, legislation passed in 1938 and 1940 removed hundreds of federal jobs from the spoils system and placed them under Civil Service. 

Presidential Primary in New York State
Ballot Information

The purpose of the Presidential primary is to select delegates to a national convention of a political party. Voters must be registered in the Democratic or Republican party to vote in that party’s primary. In New York State, the Republican and Democratic Presidential primaries are organized differently.

Republican Voters will be issued a ballot with candidates listed. The voter will choose one candidate, but will not vote for delegates. Please be advised that some candidates have withdrawn from the race but are still listed on the New York Ballot. Delegates for the Republican Party’s national convention are selected by the state’s Republican Committee.

Democratic Voters will be asked to vote for the Presidential candidate AND delegates for the democratic convention. The delegate distribution will be determined by the number of votes each Presidential candidate receives. Based on the population of your congressional district, you will vote for 5-7 delegates (indicated on the ballot instructions). The delegates listed in the same row across from the Presidential candidate are the delegates for that candidate.

You can access a sample ballot by choosing this link Sample Primary Ballot
