Good morning, Southampton. I hope this post finds you well.

— It's Primary Tuesday in Southampton. Locally, Conservative Party and Working Families voters can decide who they want to se on the ballot for Town Supervisor and Superintendent of Highways. Southampton Town Conservative voters have the option of writing in the name of the candidate of their choice for the position of Town Supervisor.  There will be no names printed on the ballot, but you can write-in the name of the candidate you want. Republican Linda Kabot and Republican Phil Keith are both seeking the Conservative line. Meanwhile, Working Families Party voters can decide between incumbent Alex Gregor, an Independence party member whose name is printed on the ballot, or write-in a name. Republican Dave Betts has been actively campaigning for the party line.

— If you are a Republican voter, there is a county-wide Republican primary for the positions of district attorney and sheriff. Republican Ray Perini is challenging District Attorney Thomas Spota, a Democrat. Republican Sam Barreto is challenging Conservative incumbent Vincent DeMarco, who hold the Sheriff position. 

Polls opened at 6 a.m., and will reman open until 9 p.m.  Vote at your regular polling place.

— Tuesday's weather is a bit rainy, but the clouds will decrease. Temperatures rising towards the mid 70s. Winds will increase throughout the day.
    — Over in East Hampton, the community has been rocked by the death of 24-year-old Donald Alversa, a fisherman who died after an accident aboard a dragger off the coast of North Carolina on Saturday. At Patch, we continue to send prayers to Donald's mother Renee and his brother Kenneth. A wake will be held at Yardley and Pino Funeral Home in East Hampton on Thursday from 2 to 8 p.m. A church service is also being arranged. More details to come.

    — Monday marked the first day back to school for most students. We asked parents to send in the photos they snapped of their kids before they got on the school bus. You can still send yours. Email Taylor.Vecsey@patch.com.

    — September is National Disaster Preparedness Month. The Suffolk County SPCA recommends having essential supplies ready to "grab and go" and know where you can find them temporary housing. We're in the midst of hurricane season. Are you prepared?
