Tuesday, June 26 is the primary election date for both Democrats and Republicans (we understand there are a few of these latter around, including our own T.K. Small). On the Democratic side, incumbent U.S. Representative Nydia Velazquez is being challenged by three hopefuls: Erik Dilan, George Martinez, and Dan O’Connor. On the Republican side three candidates, Wendy Long, George Maragos, and Bob Turner, are vying to challenge incumbent Democratic U.S. Senator Kirstin Gillibrand in November’s general election. Because of the summer date, turnout is expected to be low, so your vote will be important. Polls are open from 6:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. You can check your polling location here.
