New York State and Local Government

New York 2012 Presidential Primaries, Caucuses, and Conventions:
Democrats, Republicans, Third Parties


New York State permits so-called "cross-endorsements", in which a candidate is allowed to appear on more than one Party's ballot line: thus, a candidate who loses the nomination of one of the two Major Parties for a given office but has already been nominated for that same office by at least one Party which is not one of the two Major Parties will still appear somewhere on the General Election ballot despite losing said Primary; in other words, a candidate losing in the Primary does not necessarily preclude that candidate from running for the same office in November.

Primaries are not used when a Special Elections is called to fill a vacant U.S. House Seat. Parties nominate their candidates and independents submit petitions to appear on the Special Election ballot.


New York lost 2 U.S. House seats in the 2010 Census and will elected 27 Representatives in 2012.

Write-in/Scattered/otherwise not readily classifiable
  Scattering: 2 candidates
 
Candidates running under the banner of more than one party are counted towards each party's total. A candidate who has lost a primary or is apparently no longer a candidate is not counted.

Notes

Candidates for office appear on this page in italics where 'The Green Papers' does not yet have independent confirmation from a legal election authority that the person has been officially certified to appear on the ballot.

"FEC" indicates the Federal Election Commission (FEC) Campaign Finance Summary.

When available, we post each candidate's FEC identification number, the date of their most recently filed Report of Receipts and Disbursements, their "Tot" [Total Receipts (contributions received or what came in: FEC Form 3, Line 16, Column B)] and their "Dsb" [Total Disbursements (expenditures or what was spent: FEC Form 3, Line 23, Column B)]. A link is provided to the Federal Election Commission's Summary Report for those who might wish to explore the details.

If a candidate raises or spends $5,000 or less, he or she is not subject to FEC reporting requirements.
