GENESEO, N.Y., March. 28, 2023 — The Livingston County Board of Supervisors has appointed Gary Nageldinger as the County’s new Republican Commissioner of Elections.
He was recommended to the Board by Livingston County Republican Committee Chair John Pauer. Nageldinger’s initial appointment runs through December 31, 2024. He will serve out the remainder of current Election Commissioner Becky Schroeder’s four-year term. Schroeder is set to retire at the end of this month. Among his goals for the County’s election office, Nageldinger hopes to encourage more County residents to exercise their right to vote.
“First and foremost, I want to ensure everyone in Livingston County feels as though free and fair elections are conducted in Livingston County,” he explained. “In addition, I would like to focus on voter outreach, such as presentations at local schools and organizations, registration drives, and really being a partner and liaison between the communities we serve and the Board of Elections. I am very excited to be a part of the team here in Livingston County.”
Election Commissioners are responsible for all aspects of the election process, from voter registration and caucuses, to overseeing election inspectors and certifying each election. They also keep up to date with the often hundreds of election laws that are modified, redefined or added during each of the state’s legislative sessions. In an effort to ensure confidence in the election process, all of an Election Commissioner’s activities are performed in tandem with the Election Commissioner of the opposing political party. By statute there are two commissioners of elections, one Republican and one Democrat, and their responsibilities are executed in a bipartisan manner.
