Cochecton summer residents voter registrations challenged

That decision, at least initially, is up to the BOE commissioners. There are two such commissioners representing both major political parties. Commissioner Ann Prusinski was elected by the county Democratic Party, and commissioner Rodney Gaebel was elected by the county Republican Party.

When a voter’s registration is challenged, if one commissioner supports the challenge and the other commissioner does not, the challenge does not stand, and the challenger has the option to appeal the decision in court.

If both commissioners support the challenge, it is upheld, and the registered voter has the option of appeal.

Members of Lake Huntington Summer Community could not be reached for comment.
