Biden Tops Primary Voting; Other Results Will Be Delayed


Former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday was on his way to adding New York delegates to his campaign for the Democratic nomination for president, but final results in several other congressional and local primaries on Long Island are likely at least a week away.
The Associated Press declared Biden the winner of the New York presidential primary shortly after the polls closed. But there still are 1.8 million absentee ballots statewide to be counted.
Precautions against the spread of the coronavirus are expected to create the first New York state election in which mailed-in absentee ballots will outnumber votes cast at polling places. The results reported Tuesday night by boards of election only include numbers from early voting from June 13 through Sunday as well as those who voted Tuesday at the polls.| read more ››

Voters to be Mailed Applications for Absentee Ballots for June Primaries


All voters will be mailed applications for absentee ballots to vote in the June primary elections in order to help avoid any threat of contracting the COVID-19 virus at polling places, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said Friday.

Cuomo said he will issue an executive order that will send the applications for absentee ballots to all voters. A voter must check the box on the existing application for “temporary illness or physical disability,” but will not be required to appear before election officials to obtain an absentee ballot. Voters would have to mail the application to their local board of election, which will then send absentee ballots to them.| read more ››

New Yorkers looking to use absentee ballots to vote rather than going to polling places during the COVID-19 outbreak need only fill out an application for a mail-in ballot, according to the state Board of Elections.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s executive order temporarily suspends a portion of state election law. The order will allow voters to apply for absentee ballots because voting in person could make them susceptible to contracting the virus.

Cuomo Changes Election Rules in Effort to Slow Spread of COVID-19 Outbreak


Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo signed an executive order Saturday temporarily modifying election procedures to help reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Under the new order, the candidate petitioning process will be suspended effective 5 p.m. Tuesday for the June primaries for congressional, state senate, state assembly and judicial races.

In addition, the signature requirements for ballot access will also be modified under the new order. Candidates now only need to collect 30 percent of the statutory threshold. This means that congressional candidates need only 375 signatures rather than 1,250. Meanwhile, State Senate candidates need 300 signatures rather than 1,000, and State Assembly candidates require 150 signatures instead of the normally-required 500.| read more ››
