OSWEGO — Voters are casting ballots for dozens of local offices across Oswego County on Tuesday, including all 25 seats on the Oswego County Legislature, district attorney and family court judge.  

The Palladium-Times staff will be updating results, which can be found in the below table, throughout the night and into Wednesday morning. All results are unofficial until otherwise noted.

Republicans previously held a 20 to 5 majority over Democrats in the Oswego County Legislature, and stand to gain an even more overwhelming majority in the legislative body heading into 2020. 

In addition to the county legislature seats, district attorney and family court judge races, county voters were asked whether or not to extend the length of county legislator's terms from two years to four years. Referendum No. 1 stated the following:

Shall Oswego County Local Law Number 2 of the Year 2019, entitled "A Local Law Increasing the Term of Office for County Legislators from a Two (2) Year Term of Office to a Four (4) Year Term of Office" be approved? 

Should county legislators serve four-year terms?
