Nominees for Special Elections are selected by the parties in each affected County. There are no primaries.


9 February 2017: A 5312 was introduced by Assemblymember Michael Cusick. The bill would move the primary for all non-presidential offices to the 4th Tuesday in June.

12 December 2013 / 29 October 2015: U.S. District Court Judge Gary L. Sharpe ruled that the New York 2012-2016 primaries for U.S. House and U.S Senate races will be held on the 4th Tuesday in June. The MOVE act requires 45 days between the Primary and the General Election for overseas ballots to be sent and returned. [Case 1:10-cv-01214-GLS-RFT]


On 2 March 2018, New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo (Democratic) signed AB8917 which, for 2018 only, moves the state and local partisan primary from Tuesday 11 September to Thursday 13 September. "... the 2018 fall primary shall be held on Thursday, September 13, 2018..." [Section 1].

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.

Primary dates marked "presumably" and polling times marked "reportedly" are based on unofficial or estimated data (especially as regards local variations from a jurisdictionwide statutory and/or regulatory standard) and are, thereby, subject to change.

"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.
