Races to watch in New York

U.S. Congress


  • 1st Congressional District
See also: New York's 1st Congressional District elections, 2014
Rep. Tim Bishop (D) sought re-election in a district that slowly became more conservative over the past decade. State Sen. Lee Zeldin was the Republican front-runner. With Zeldin's name recognition and both candidates' ability to win elections with the 1st District constituency, the district was the scene of one of the more competitive races of 2014. Zeldin defeated Bishop in the general election.
  • 11th Congressional District
See also: New York's 11th Congressional District elections, 2014
Rep. Michael Grimm (R) was redistricted to the 11th District for his 2012 re-election campaign. Despite the district voting for President Barack Obama by 4.3 percentage points, Grimm won his bid by 5 percentage points. However, the 2014 campaign started early with numerous outside groups dumping money and attention into the race beginning in 2013. Grimm still won the general election on November 4, 2014.
  • 18th Congressional District
See also: New York's 18th Congressional District elections, 2014
Rep. Sean Maloney defeated the 19th District incumbent Nan Hayworth (R) in the newly drawn 18th District by 3.7 percentage points. In 2014, with a better idea of the district's constituency, Hayworth and Maloney were set for a rematch. Maloney defeated Hayworth in the general election.
  • 23rd Congressional District
See also: New York's 23rd Congressional District elections, 2014
Rep. Tom Reed (R) faced a challenge from Martha Robertson (D) in the general election. The 23rd ranked as competitive on every one of Ballotpedia's measures for the most competitive districts in 2014. Reed defeated Robertson in the general election.

Important voting information

  • New York uses a closed primary system, meaning voters must register with a party to be able to vote in their primary election.
  • As of November 2014, New York is one of the 15 states that have implemented online voter registration. Residents can register online at this website.

Voting absentee

See also: Absentee voting by state

For information about eligibility, deadlines, military and overseas voting and updates to the voting laws in New York, please visit our absentee voting by state page.

Voting early

See also: Early voting

New York is one of eight states which allow early voting but require an excuse to vote early. Early voting begins as soon as ballots are available (at least 32 days before election day) and ends the day prior to the election. The average number of days prior to an election that voters can cast an early ballot is 21 days in states with a definitive starting date.[58][59]

To vote early you need to provide an excuse for why you will be unable to vote at the polls during normal voting hours. The following are valid reasons:[58]

  • unavoidably absent from your county on election day
  • unable to appear at the polls due to illness or disability
  • a patient in a Veterans’ Administration Hospital
  • detained in jail awaiting Grand Jury action or confined in prison after conviction for an offense other than a felony

Elections Performance Index

See also: Pew Charitable Trusts' Elections Performance Index

New York ranked 50th out of the 50 states and District of Columbia in the Pew Charitable Trusts' Elections Performance Index (EPI), based on the 2012 elections. The EPI examines election administration performance and assigns an average percentage score based on 17 indicators of election performance. These indicators were chosen in order to determine both the convenience and integrity of these three phases of an election: registration, voting and counting. New York received an overall score of 45 percent.[60]
