UTICA, N.Y. – The candidates for Utica mayor headed to their designated polling places Tuesday to cast their ballots as they eagerly await the general election results.

Incumbent Mayor Robert Palmieri and his wife voted at the Parkway Center. He says he’s proud of his campaign team for their efforts during this year’s race.

"I think our campaign was a very positive campaign. We stayed to the issues, we talked about what's going on. We talked about the facts. So, I'm very proud of our team. I'm very proud of our city. I'm very proud of where we have come from," said Palmieri.

Palmieri’s challenger, Joe Marino, ran on the Independence line after losing the Democratic primary to Palmieri in June by 255 votes.

Marino brought his wife and children to MVCC Tuesday while he cast his ballot in the general election, saying his family has helped him throughout his campaign.

"I think it's been long, it's been long on my family, and I think we're ready for it to be over and ready to see what kind of direction the city would like to take. I'm really, really proud of the campaign we ran and I'm really proud of my family for standing behind me this entire time," said Marino.

Republican Matt Arcuri is also on the ballot for Utica mayor.
