    Lowville, NY- After serving one term as Lewis County Clerk, Linda D. Hoskins
    tells linkinglewiscounty.com that she will not be seeking re-election to the
    post this year. Ms. Hoskins will instead retire following the completion of her
    term on December 31, telling us she is looking forward to spending time with
    her family and travelling.

    All four countywide elected positions (County Clerk, District Attorney, Sheriff
    and Treasurer)  will be on the ballot this year.

    Lewis County Treasurer Patricia O'Brien announced in August that she would
    be retiring at the end of her term in 2019. Denise Yost, a senior account clerk
    in the Treasurer's office, announced in November that she intended to run for
    the position of Treasurer.

    This means that at least two of the four countywide elected positions will have
    a new face in the office in 2020.

    Lewis County District Attorney Leanne Moser and Lewis County Sheriff
    Micheal Carpinelli have not made official announcements yet on whether they
    will seek re-election in 2019.

    All ten Lewis County Legislator positions will be on the ballot in 2019 as well.

    The election cycle is getting off to an early start this year, with the Primary
    Election date in New York State moving up to the fourth Tuesday in June.
    Previously, the primaries were held on the second Tuesday in September.

    With an earlier Primary Election, candidates will need to begin the process of
    seeking office much earlier than in past years. Candidates will begin the
    petition process on February 26.















    All petitions for the major party candidates must be filed with the Lewis County
    Board of Elections between April 1 and April 4, with a Primary Election on June
    25 if needed. The General Election will take place on November 5.

    Anyone interested in obtaining petitions for any elected office in the 2019
    General Election can stop by the Lewis County Board of Elections, located in
    the Lowville Commons building at 7550 S. State Street. You can also call the
    Board of Elections at 315-376-5329 with any questions on the process.

    The following is a list of all the offices to be filled throughout the county in the
    2019 General Election, including at the town and village level:
