Bill To Establish June Primary Passes State Assembly
New York state’s primary elections would take place in June under a bill passed by the Assembly.
Legislation sponsored by Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi would establish the fourth Tuesday in June as New York’s primary election day for both federal and state offices.
Brindisi says the measure will save state and local governments about $50 million.
Both Oneida and Herkimer Counties would see meaningful savings on the cost of ballots, election workers and other expenses.
Herkimer County would save about $59,000 and Oneida County stands to save $117,600.
