Voters are going to the polls in Troy, where the mayoral race has taken many twists and turns leading up to election day.

The three major party candidates for mayor of Troy debated crime, city finances, and infrastructure on Wednesday. The candidates also got the opportunity to ask questions to each other in what has been a highly politicized campaign season.

Candidates Patrick Madden, Rodney Wiltshire, and Jim Gordon met in a debate hosted by Time Warner Cable News. Independent candidate Jack Cox did not participate.

After a count of absentee ballots, there is a winner of Troy's Democratic mayoral primary. The victor of the race deemed too close to call on election night last week is now focused on November.

It was standing-room-only at the Rensselaer County Board of Elections Wednesday morning as the affidavit and absentee ballots were counted to determine the winner of Troy's Democratic mayoral primary.
