Local Buffalo paper:Democrats now outnumber Republicans
In the formerly uber-Republican suburban stronghold of Amherst:

At some point in the past year, without anyone noticing, Buffalo's largest, most affluent suburb turned "blue."

Erie County Board of Elections figures show that Amherst, long a Republican stronghold, now has 84 more registered Democrats than Republicans - 31,046 to 30,962, to be precise, an election board spokesman said. All of this leads to "a supercharged election process - either party can win," said Dennis Ward, chairman of the town's Democratic Party.

His GOP counterpart agrees.

"Amherst is changing, definitely changing. Republicans are going to have to work harder," Marshall Wood Jr., chairman of the Amherst Republican Party, said Thursday.
