In April and May, we hosted a series of Candidates Forums to help Northern Manhattan voters get to know the candidates for the Primaries and General elections. You can watch the video replay of those forums here.
Because of the redistricting mess in New York State, we had two primaries instead of one. The first primary was held on June 28, 2022 and included the New York State Governor, Lt. Governor, and the Assembly races. A second primary was held on August 23, 2022 and included the U.S. House of Representatives and New York State Senate races. No primary was held this year for the U.S. Senate and New York State Comptroller and Attorney General races because none of the candidates are being challenged within their own party. And Election Day will be on November 8, 2022.
Wondering if you have been redistricted? THE CITY has a simple online tool that will give you the answer: click here.
