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


AFFIDAVIT VOTING permitted in NY State by Executive Order of Gov Cuomo

NOTE: The following only applies to voters in the Federal disaster-declared counties of the State:

Governor Andrew Cuomo [Democrat- NEW YORK] has signed an Executive Order permitting so-called 'Affidavit Voting' primarily to allow eligible voters in NEW YORK STATE who were displaced by Hurricane/Superstorm 'Sandy' to vote in any polling place in the State where they are unable to get to their usual polling place during regular polling hours on Tuesday 6 November 2012.

In 'Affidavit Voting', a voter who appears at a polling place other than the one to which their home address (location of their residence) is assigned, first, fills out an affidavit stating that they are unable to vote in their usual polling place after which, second, they receive a ballot for the polling place in which they will actually be voting. The voter is allowed to fill out as much of the ballot they receive as they might wish; however, only those elective offices for which the voter would otherwise be entitled to vote in their usual polling place will be counted!

In all cases, the choices of the voter voting under Affidavit in NEW YORK STATE (as described above) for President (and Vice-President) of the United States and Class 1 United States Senator will have those votes counted (since the candidates contesting for those positions are uniform throughout the State); but, where the voter so utilizing Affidavit Voting might end up voting in, say, a Congressional District other then that of their residence/home address, any vote cast by that voter for Representative in the Congress of the United States will not be counted; where he/she might end up voting in a different State Senate District or a different Assembly District from that in which he/she normally resides (at the home address at which the voter is, in fact, already registered to vote), said votes for these respective chambers of the New York State Legislature will not be counted; where said voter might end up voting in a different County from that in which he/she resides (and in which he/she is registered to vote), any vote cast for- say- County Sheriff or other County elective office will not be counted, etc. etc.

Voters who are displaced from their homes and unable to otherwise go to their usual polling place (or, in some cases, a polling place that- because of damage from 'Sandy' to their community- is different from their usual polling place but still in, or near, that community) and who so choose to avail themselves of Affidavit Voting (as heretofore described) must understand that, in the end, they will not be permitted to have votes counted for elective offices for which they would otherwise not be voting in their usual polling place; at the same time, however, their votes for elective offices for which they would otherwise be entitled to vote in their usual polling place will be counted under this system of Affidavit Voting now authorized by the Governor of NEW YORK.


12 December 2011: U.S. District Court Judge Gary L. Sharpe declared that he will choose a date for the 2012 statewide Primary in the case of U.S. v State of New York (10-cv-1214). The MOVE act requires 45 days between the Primary and the General Election for overseas ballots to be sent and returned. Reference: Politics on the Hudson.

27 January 2012: U.S. District Court Judge Gary L. Sharpe ruled that the New York 2012 primaries for U.S. House and U.S Senate races will be held on the 4th Tuesday in June, 26 June 2012. [Case 1:10-cv-01214-GLS-RFT]

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.
