Cattaraugus County Republicans will chose between Allegany County Legislature Chairman Curtis Crandall and Chautauqua County Executive George Borrello in Tuesday’s primary voting.

That is the only countywide primary race.

Voting will be conducted from noon to 9 p.m. at 55 polling sites.

There are a handful of primary contests — mostly Republican — in both the cities of Olean and Salamanca and four towns.

There are three Republican primaries for county legislators in Districts 1, 7 and 8.

District 1 includes the towns of Dayton, New Albion, Otto, Perrysburg and Persia and pits two incumbent legislators, Richard Klancer and Andrew Burr, and Constance Johnson, who is also on the Democratic line in the November election.

There’s a spirited legislative race in District 7, which includes the towns of Hinsdale, Humphrey, Ischua, Olean and Portville.

Incumbent Legislators Joseph Snyder of Ischua and Dan Hale of Portville, the Legislature vice chairman, are being challenged by Eric Firkel of Portville, the former county attorney, and Kip Morrow, a former Portville town councilman.

In the City of Olean, there are Republican primaries in Wards 2 and 6.

In Ward 2, Kevin Bartholomew and Jason Panus are vying for the Republican nomination. Panus is also on the Conservative and Independence Party lines in November, as is Democrat Tracylynn Huselstein, who is also on the Working Families Party line.

Ward 6 Alderman Nate Smith is being challenged in the Republican primary by Peyton Kunselman, who is also on the Democratic and Working Families Party line. Smith also has the Conservative and Independence parties lines.
