NEW YORK (AP) - New York State's first election with early voting is reaching its conclusion as people across the state cast ballots in county and municipal races.

With no federal or statewide contests on the ballot Tuesday, turnout is expected to be low.

But this year's contests are serving as a rehearsal for next year's blockbuster presidential race.

It marks the first time New York allowed all registered voters to cast ballots before Election Day. Officials said roughly a quarter million ballots were cast in the state between Oct. 26 and Sunday.

Polls are open Tuesday until 9 p.m.

The most interesting contest is taking place in New York City, where a referendum is being held to decide whether to adopt ranked choice voting in future elections.
