Voter Registration

Overview of the 2014 Election Cycle


Election Day 2014 will be Tuesday, November 4, 2014. New Yorkers will be voting for the four state-wide offices of Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, and Comptroller; as well as their local representatives to the state Senate, state Assembly, and U.S. House of Representatives.


There will be party primary elections for U.S. Congressional seats in the House of Representatives on Tuesday, June 24, 2014. These are the federal-level races of 2014 in New York since 2014 is not a presidential election year and neither of New York’s two U.S. Senators (Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand) are up for re-election. All of the other elections are for state-level offices. The primary date for these elections is still to-be-determined, though it could be that same June 24th. Otherwise, it will likely be the second Tuesday in September, which is 9/9/14.
