The 2020 Census revealed changes in the population of New York State that required changes to the state’s districting at federal and state levels. After multiple legal challenges to the proposed redistricting maps, new Congressional, State Senate and State Assembly maps have been finalized. As a result of the ongoing challenges, New Yorkers will vote in two primaries this summer ahead of the general election in November. 

The June Primary will take place on June 28, 2022. Early voting will be available June 18 through 26. The June Primary ballot will feature the candidates for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, State Assembly, Judges, and party positions. 

The August primary will take place on August 23, 2022. Early voting will be available August 13 through 21. The August Primary will feature candidates for the U.S. House and the State Senate. 

New Yorkers have until tomorrow, June 3rd, to register for the June primary election. For those that have recently moved, the Board of Elections must receive your change of address by June 8th. To verify that you are registered to vote, click here.

The Board of Elections has provided a list of the new district maps. Please be aware your districts may have changed. For more detailed information about changes to your districts, click here.
