New York is slated to hold two separate primary elections this year after a redistricting process that led to United States House of Representatives and State Senate district lines being redrawn.
The primaries for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, State Comptroller, State Assembly, and U.S. Senate will be held in June, with early voting June 18-26 and primary day the 28th. Please exercise your right to vote!
Congressional and State Senate primaries will be held in August with early voting from August 13-21 and primary day the 23rd.
Application to register to vote must be postmarked no later than July 29, 2022 and received by a board of elections no later than August 3, 2022 to be eligible to vote in the August 23 Primary.
The deadline to register to vote in the June primary has passed, it was June 3 for in-person registrations, while mailed registration forms must be postmarked June 3 and received by the Board of Elections by June 8.
New York has closed party primaries, meaning voters must be registered with the party in order to vote in its primary. The February 14 deadline to switch party affiliation before the primary has long passed.
