Early voting begins in 43rd Assembly District special election Saturday


Early voting is set to begin on Saturday, March 12, in the special election to replace Diana Richardson in central Brooklyn’s 43rd Assembly District, which covers Prospect Lefferts Gardens and parts of Crown Heights and Flatbush.

Richardson vacated her Assembly seat, which she’d held since 2015, earlier this year to become Deputy Borough President under new beep Antonio Reynoso. The Democratic nomination, which is decided by the party’s County Committee, was won by Brian Cunningham, a fixture of area politics who previously ran for City Council and has worked for a number of local pols.
