Make Your Plan for Early Voting in the New York Primaries
Primary races are underway in New York for a number of local and state offices. The official primary date for local elections is Tuesday, June 28, but, thanks to the expansion of voting laws in 2019, New Yorkers can now vote for their party’s candidate to run in races for governor, lieutenant governor, State Assembly offices, judgeships and party positions. (Note that more primary elections are to come in August for U.S. Congress and the state senate — but let’s climb one electoral mountain at a time.)
For residents who live below Chambers Street, it appears there is only one early voting location this year: Fiterman Hall at 245 Greenwich Street.
Also, an FYI: Early voting locations are not the same as your usual polling place. But they will be open longer in the run up to the election to allow more folks time to vote. It runs through June 26, and, of course, you can vote on primary day, June 28, at your regular polling place in case you miss the early-voting period.
