Your Local Election HQ

For the first time in eight years, voters will elect a new Erie County Executive.

Kathy Dahlkemper is stepping away from the job after two terms.

We met up with candidates Brenton Davis and Dr. Tyler Titus as they voted Tuesday morning.

As polls opened for Election Day, Republican Candidate Brenton Davis casted his ballot in Belle Valley.

“It’s the American right to vote. As we exercise our rights and our constitutional rights, it’s important to turnout for the candidates that best represent who you believe will be best represent your future for yourself and your families,” said Brenton Davis, Republican Candidate for Erie County Executive.

Later in the morning, Democratic Candidate Tyler Titus voted with a crowd of people cheering outside Trinity Methodist Church.

“This is our chance. This is our time. This is our county. So make sure that you get out there and you elect somebody who’s going to invest in the working class family, who’s going to invest in creating a healthier and safer community by building up our human services,” said Dr. Tyler Titus, Democratic Candidate for Erie County Executive.

After months of campaigning, each candidate is hoping for people to get out and vote.

“It started five years ago. We’ve been on this campaign trail for 23,000 miles since January alone. I think realistically now it’s just in the hands of the voters and for folks to turn out,” said Davis.

“Our campaign has connected to those who have felt left behind and we’re bringing forward a voice and a desire to create a kind of government that is truly representative of all of Erie County,” said Dr. Titus.

No matter who comes out on top, the winner will be the youngest County Executive in Erie history.
