With separate primaries for Congress and the state legislature, there are a lot of election-related dates to keep track of this year in New York.
Date Event

Two key deadlines are approaching for voters and potential candidates in the Empire State.

  • Tomorrow, June 1st, is the last day to register to vote in the Congressional primary election. New York is one of 21 states that uses a strictly closed primary system. In order to be eligible to vote in the June 26th primary election, voters must, by law, be registered 25 days before the primary takes place.[1]

More information about how to register to vote is available on the New York State Board of Elections' website.
