Many voters, however, said they came to the polls not because of a concern with any particular issue or support of a particular candidate, but out of a general sense of civic duty, as did City of Tonawanda resident Kay Whipple.
"I just think it's important to vote, any chance you get," she said.
In North Tonawanda, election workers at City Hall said things had been slower, but still steady. A number of voters also declined to cite any particular issue with the city or its candidates, but cited their belief that they have a duty to uphold.
"I vote because I'm an American," said resident Janice Makey as she left City Hall on Tuesday afternoon. "Just because I can."
Polls are open until 9 p.m.
