Another election cycle is upon us! This year, a recent New York State Supreme Court decision split the primary elections in two. Early voting for the first primary began this weekend, where voters cast ballots for the State Assembly, governor, and other statewide offices. Early voting ends on June 26. The first primary election will take place on June 28.
The second primary election will take place on August 23. That race consists of State Senate and congressional elections.
The general election is on November 8.
