It's possible the June 26 primary for federal offices will be moved to coincide with a new date being contemplated for primary elections for other offices including those on the state and local level...Or Albany may actually move all primaries to June 26.
In order to comply with a federal law on sending out military ballots on time, a court ruled primaries for US Senate and Congress had to be held earlier and June 26 was picked.
Actually all primaries used to be held in June til the GOP led the charge for September primaries way back in the 70's.
There was a reason at the time but no one remembers what it was.
Holding separate primaries in June and September seems at the least confusing.
For NNY, there are GOP primaries for Congress and US Senate.
Party insiders say turnout will be ten to fifteen percent at best.
