The first primary elections of the 2022 cycle are underway in New York State, with voters choosing who will represent each party in the November general election. Court challenges to the state’s redistricting process created two primary elections this year. You must be registered in either the Democrat or Republican party to vote in your party’s primary. Independents may not vote in New York’s closed primary system.
First up – on June 28 – are primaries for Governor, Lieutenant Governor and members of the State Assembly. Early voting is already taking place. Click here to find your polling place.
The second primary will be held on Aug. 23 and will determine each party’s candidates for the U.S. Congress and State Senate.
