Google Maps: 2017 State Supreme Court Justice [KML] [iframe] 

Map uploaded on December 11, 2017.

Normally, State Supreme Court Justice races are a good way of judging how voters actually vote regardless of how they are enrolled. Most people vote for State Supreme Court justices not based on the candidate but their partisan leanings. State Supreme Court Justice candidates are severely limited on how ideological they can be when campaigning, and rarely are well known personalities. This year in 2017, this wasn't as true as Peter G. Crummey had been a 17 year Colonie Town Justice, which gave him name recognition in Colonie and helped to make him a local favorite. Julian Schreibman previously ran as a candidate for Congressman in NY 18th district, but because that district is entirely outside of Albany County, he had little local name recognition except to the extent that regional media previously covered his candidacy.
