Few surprises in Queens as unofficial results for primary elections trickle in


As polls close for the June 28 primary elections, results are beginning to trickle in.

Queens voters had the chance to vote for candidates running for governor, lieutenant governor, state assembly and judge of the civil circuit from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. on June 28.

The primaries for congressional and state Senate races were delayed to Aug. 23 due to the New York State of Appeals striking down the proposed district maps earlier this year.

Low voter turnout was reported across the borough throughout the day.

Stephanie Chauncey, a Queensbridge resident and coordinator at the P.S. 78 voting site, said that she was alarmed by the lack of voting Tuesday and during the early voting period.

“This is your community. Have a voice,” Chauncey said. “Have a voice for your children, [and] for the seniors if you feel some type of way. We need to be out here — our lives depend on it.”
