Two powerful women – one seat in Congress. Both County Executive Maggie Brooks and Congresswoman Louise Slaughter have impressive records of getting voters to come out and support them come Election Day.

Heading into Tuesday, a Siena poll placed Louise Slaughter ahead of Maggie Brooks by 10 points.

Slaughter voted in her home district of Fairport and Maggie Brooks voted in Webster.

Both have spent the past few days telling voters the importance of coming out Election Day. Brooks and Slaughter say this is a close race, regardless of what the polls say, and it will come done to voter turn out.

The 25th District was recently redrawn it includes all but four towns in Monroe County -- Hamlin, Wheatland, Rush and Mendon. It’s primarily democratic district.
