Senate, Assembly Disagree On Primary Election Date, Costing NY $25M Extra

In today’s Syracuse Post Standard, Mike McAndrew writes that “unless the Assembly and Republican-controlled Senate agree on the same date for the primary elections, New York will hold the congressional primary elections this year on June 28 and the primary elections for state offices on Sept. 13.

Having primaries on two dates will cost taxpayers an extra $25 million and require voters to go to the polls at least four times in 2016. In addition to those two dates, there will be the presidential primary election on April 19 and the general election on Nov. 8.”
