Elections 2023: Historic Turnover on East End Ballots This Fall to Usher in Political Sea Change

Those who believe the old adage that politicians and diapers must be changed often, and for the same reason, will be pleased when they enter East End voting booths this Election Day.

For the first time in decades — perhaps ever — all five Twin Forks town supervisors races have no incumbents on ballots this fall at the same time that voters will also be replacing the Suffolk County executive and the county legislators for the Hamptons and the North Fork. The historic political sea change on tap means the entire region will have new town and county representation when the votes are tallied and electoral winners are sworn in upon the New Year.
