SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Onondaga County voters won't have to wait all night for results this coming election night. The Board of Elections is unveiling a new system that will allow the numbers to be posted as soon as they come in.
If you're voting in Onondaga County you can find out sooner than in the past. Time Warner Cable News got a sneak peak before it gets unveiled.
Once the polls close at 9 p.m. on Election night, people can find up to date results on the BOE's website for individual districts as they are reported.
Full colored maps will make it easy to see how individual candidates are doing in certain areas and what districts have yet to report.
This new technology will especially be beneficial at watch parties where candidates and supporters are eagerly waiting for updates.
"As the results come in, you can kind of see, which towns have reported, which ones haven't. Which areas in which towns or cities have reported, and kind of just get more information about how the night is going,” said Onondaga County BOE Commissioner Dustin Czarny.
Czarny says none of the machines have Internet capability yet, so memory cards are physically brought to the Board of Elections on Election Night. Once those cards are delivered from 185 sites -- the results can be posted on the BOE's website.
Czarny says he believes Onondaga County is one of the first counties in upstate New York to use this while it is used by some areas of New York City.
