New York State Board of Elections Sets Primary Date – June 25, 2019

As we noted last week, the Governor has signed a number of bills concerning elections, including a bill that moves primary elections for New York State and local officials to June.  The Board of Elections has released its calendar.

Type of Election Date Lowest Unit Rate Period Begins
NY State Primary June 25, 2019 May 11, 2019 (45 days prior)
NY State General Election November 5, 2019 September 6, 2019 (60 days prior)


Obviously there are no Federal elections in 2019.  In 2020, both the state and federal primaries will be held on the same date.  To see a copy of the Board of Elections press release for 2019 elections click HERE.
