Hoylman: Hold Both Primaries On The Same Day

Senator Brad Hoylman penned a column for the Times Union, making the case  that  “there are plenty of reasons for the Legislature to get its act together to avoid holding two separate primaries this summer — 25 million of them, to be exact.

Taxpayers will save $25 million — the cost of printing ballots and paying poll workers — if the Senate and Assembly agree on a combined date to hold both the federal and state primaries.

Unless they agree on a new date, New York will be holding a federal primary June 28 and a state primary Sept. 13.

Of course, it would be only logical to hold one primary. But this is Albany, folks, and once again, dysfunction and partisan gridlock trump reason.”
