New York State Election Changes

New York State in late January amended State Election Law to change the day for primary elections from September to the fourth Tuesday in June, this year June 25, 2019.  This will impact the City commissioner election as well.

By having the Primary election in June, this moves all the other election dates up as well.  The first impact is the nominating petition process.  Nominating petitions can now be circulated between February 26, 2019 and April 4, 2019.  The law also spells out when the petitions can be filed, in this case in 2019, that is between April 1 and April 4, 2019. 

General election dates remain unchanged, the first Tuesday (following the first Monday) in November, this year November 5.
