Today Is Congressional Primary Day. What’s Happening?

In the Times Union, Matt Hamilton provides a statewide overview of today’s congressional primary races:

“Welcome to the second of three primary days (and four total election days) of the year.

Polls in New York City and its suburbs open at 6 a.m. Polls everywhere north of Putnam and Orange counties open at noon. All polls remain open until 9 p.m. If you run into problems at the polls, the state attorney general’s office has set up a complaint line at 1-800-771-7755 or civil.rights@ag.ny.gov.”

New York is holding several primaries this year: for presidential convention delegates, Congress, and the state legislature (plus other local offices). Today’s primary date was set by a federal judge after the legislature failed to agree on a date. The judge selected a June date in order to comply with federal military overseas voting requirements.
