On June 28 New Yorkers will head to the polls to vote for their party’s candidate for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and in St. Lawrence County there will be a Republican Primary for the Assembly 116th district too.
Other primaries in SLC will include Conservative Party Primaries for Surrogate Court Judge and Potsdam Town Justice, Republican Primaries for the 7th and 12th County Legislature Districts, and for Councilman in both Edwards and Lawrence.
Voters will have the opportunity to vote for their party’s candidate for State Senate and Congress on August 23.
With the 2022 primaries being split over two dates, it is more important than ever that voters have access to accurate, unbiased information about who and what will be on their ballot. The St. Lawrence County League of Women Voters directs interested voters to visit www.Vote411.org .
