GET OUT THE VOTE! INFORMATION ON THE 2022 NEW YORK STATE ELECTIONS

Affordable housing, public safety, transit system improvements – what are the issues that matter most to you? If you want to see real change in your community, you must have a say in who represents you in Albany. We want to make sure every DC 37 member has the information you need to cast your ballot in this year’s elections.

Redistricting

New York State has now completed the redistricting process. Every 10 years, the state reapportions legislative districts in accordance with population changes measured by the U.S. Census Bureau. The initial redistricting maps submitted by the Democrats in the state Legislature were rejected by a court decision. A special master was appointed to revise the district borders for Congress and the New York State Senate. As a result of this process, the boundaries for legislative districts in your neighborhood may have changed. You can find more information about the impact the redistricting process has had in your area at newyork.redistrictingandyou.org.

Changes in Election Calendar

There are important changes to the 2022 election calendar that you and your family should know about. As a result of challenges to the initial redistricting process, New York State will have two primary elections in 2022. Primary elections for the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, U.S. Senate and New York State Assembly will take place on Tuesday, June 28. Primary elections for New York State Senate and U.S. House of Representatives will take place on Tuesday, August 23. The general election will take place on Tuesday, November 8, as originally scheduled.
