State and Local Primary Elections, Sep 13

Voters in New York, that are affiliated with a political party, have several primary races to vote for. These Primary Elections give voters the chance to select candidates for state and local level offices (Governor, State Senator, State Assembly, County Clerk, Town Justice, etc.).

Though elections are typically held on Tuesdays, this year’s primary election was moved to Thursday, September 13, after Cuomo signed a bill to move the date back two days. The previously announced date—September 11—would not only conflict with the end of Rosh Hashanah, but would also present a conflict for those who may be commemorating the 17th anniversary of 9/11.

DATE/TIME:
State/Local primary election: Thursday, September 13

General election: Tuesday, November 6

LOCATIONS:
Visit the Columbia County Board of Elections site (here) for locations.
