The primaries for governor, lieutenant governor and members of the state Assembly took place on June 28. Now, congressional and state Senate representatives will face off in myriad districts across the state on Aug. 23. 

Most congressional districts up for grabs are in Central and Northern New York and the Hudson Valley, with the exception of the 23rd District, which stretches along the western edge of the Southern Tier.

Voters must be registered with a party to participate in that party’s primary election. 

Early voting for the primaries starts on Saturday, Aug. 13. 

The general election is on Nov. 8, where New Yorkers will vote on a final slate of officials who made it through the Democratic and Republican primaries. 

Here’s what you need to know about voting in the primaries in the coming weeks. 


Note: One addition to the otherwise comprehensive information here is that voters may still apply for absentee ballots in person at the Westchester County Board of Elections through Aug. 22.
