Conklin, NY (WBNG Binghamton) "Relief" is what Broome County Executive Debbie Preston says she is feeling on Election Day after what calls a long campaign.

Preston cast her ballot at the Conklin Town Hall on Tuesday morning with her husband and daughter voting as well.

The Republican was emotional in the line before voting. She talked to residents. Preston says she misses the Town of Conklin and the people living there. She was Conklin Supervisor before winning the special election for County Executive in 2011.

Preston says she wouldn't change a thing about her campaign.

"It never mattered to me that I was up for election because I felt there needed to be tough choices made for the people of Broome County so I feel good about that. If I had it to over again, I would do it the same," said Preston (R), Broome County Executive, " For myself and for my family, it's been a long two years. I hope that the voters truly realize that I am here for them and that we can continue on for 4 years because we still have a lot to do."

Preston's Election Day scheduled included a dentist appointment, working at the County, a lunch meeting and relaxing at home before heading to the Holiday Inn Arena to wait for the results come in.
