Elmira (WENY) - Some of the voters we spoke with tonight at the Clemens Center say they're still undecided on the race between Reed and Shinagawa. Voters of all ages were in the audience to hear what both candidates had to say tonight Voters we spoke with were mostly decided, coming to the debate to support their candidate. But there were some in the audience wanting answers on some key issues before they vote next Tuesday. Ryan Mason from Southside High School is starting to get involved early in the political process.
"I don't know too much about the candidates so I'd like to get to know a little bit more and I've never been to a live debate before so it's a cool experience,” says Ryan.
Ryan's dad says he is influenced by his sons involvement and says he knows who he is voting for this election.
“It has been pretty clear cut so far but I haven't heard much from Nate Shinagawa so I'm looking forward to hearing his side of the issues tonight,” says Paul Mason.
The winner of the race will serve as the representative for the newly drawn 23rd Congressional District, which extends west all the way to Chataqua County, and north up to the Finger lakes region.
