Primary Elections 2023: What to Expect

On June 27, 2023, voters will return to the polls for the New York State primary election. 

This year, the entire New York City Council is up for reelection following last year’s redistricting after the 2020 census. To see the final redistricting maps for the City Council districts, click here.

In addition, voters will be able to vote for District Attorney, Civil Court Judges, and Delegates to the Judicial Convention, which is responsible for nominating candidates for New York Supreme Court. 

As New York is a closed primary state, voters must affiliate with a party to vote in that party’s primary election. Voters have until Monday, June 12th to update addresses and request absentee ballots online or by mail. The voter registration deadline is Saturday, June 17th. To register to vote, click here. Absentee ballots may be requested in person by Monday, June 26th and all absentee ballots must be returned at a poll site or postmarked by June 27th. 

Early voting runs from Saturday, June 17 to Sunday, June 25th. Early voting sites and hours can be found here.

Ranked choice voting will be used for the City Council election. For more information about ranked choice voting and how it works, click here.
