Flag of New York.png
The 2012 U.S. House of Representatives elections in New York took place on November 6, 2012. Voters elected 27 candidates to serve in the U.S. House, one from each of the state's 27 congressional districts.
Candidate Filing Deadline Primary Election General Election
April 16, 2012

November 6, 2012

Primary: New York has a closed primary system, meaning only registered members of a particular party may vote in that party's primary.

Voter registration: Voters had to register to vote in the primary by June 1. For the general election, the voter registration deadline was October 12, or October 26 in person.[1]

See also: New York elections, 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.[2]

According to the New York Times race ratings in October 2012, 10 of the 27 districts are considered to be in play. Those are the 1st, 11th, 18th, 19th, 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 25th and 27th districts.[3]

The Center for Voting and Democracy (Fairvote) projected that Democrats would win 15 districts while Republicans would win one seat. It did not make a projection for the remaining 11 districts.[4]

Primary competitiveness
