Brooklynites consider schools, community and the Supreme Court in primary elections


It’s Primary Day! Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, June 28, for the first part of the Democratic primary, where New Yorkers will cast their first votes for the state Assembly, governor, lieutenant governor, judges, and local political party positions. 

New York’s ongoing redistricting process has sliced the primary in half — voters will head back to the polls in August for the congressional and state Senate primary — and there’s plenty of electoral fun to be had. Brooklyn is chock full of competitive Assembly races, and there are dozens of people in the running for judgeships, District Leader and County Committee positions.
