Since Bedford is in the newly redrawn 18th Congressional District, voters will choose between Sean Maloney, (D), a former aide to President Bill Clinton, and U.S. Rep. Nan Hayworth R) who formerly represented the 19th District, but now represents the 18th because of redistricting.
Bedford voters will choose between George Latimer (D) and Bob Cohen (R) in the state Senate's 37th District.
