The 11th congressional district of New York will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 6, 2012.
This is the 11th congressional district prior to the 2011 redistricting.

Candidates wishing to run must file by the signature filing deadline April 16, 2012. On January 27, 2012, Judge Gary Sharpe moved the primary date from September 11, 2012 to June 26, 2012 in order to allow for sufficient time to send absentee ballots to military voters.[1]

Heading into the election the incumbent is Yvette D. Clarke (D), who was first elected to the House in 2006. Due to redistricting, Clarke will run in the new 9th district, and 13th district incumbent Michael Grimm will run in the new 11th.
