ALBANY - One year to the day after the DMV office on South Pearl Street in Albany closed its doors, the building has reopened as the Albany County Board of Elections Office.

County officials say the move will save taxpayers about $25,000 a month.


The county owns the building. At their old location, rent was more than $350,000 a year.

However, it wasn't everyone's top choice for a new location.
