The candidates for November’s general election are set; Early voting starts Oct. 29 and Election Day is Nov. 8.

The general election will include statewide races for governor, comptroller and attorney general as well as a key Congressional race.

Republicans have their eye on flipping the U.S. House of Representatives in November. The 22nd Congressional district is a toss-up district with no incumbent and could prove valuable for either party to establish a majority.

A few key retirements are likely to shake up the county-level races: Onondaga County Sheriff Eugene Conway and Onondaga County Court judges Stephen Dougherty and Thomas Miller retired this year.

Each candidate who will be on the ballot in November is listed with their party endorsements and affiliations below. Incumbents are noted with an asterisk and are listed first. Otherwise, candidates are listed in alphabetical order by last name.
