It's time to head to the polls. Early voting starts on Aug. 13 and runs through Aug. 21, two days before primary election day on Aug. 23. Voters will choose which candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives and state Senate will represent their party in the November general election.
Some voters will discover that they live in a different district from past elections. That's because of the redistricting process following the 2020 Census. It mostly impacted congressional House and state Senate districts.
Updated election day and early voting poll site and ballot samples are available online at the New York Board of Elections site.
