Everything you need to know ahead of the Aug. 23 primary election in Brooklyn

Voting Booth

Early voting for the second half of New York State’s primary elections kicks off on Aug. 13 ahead of Primary Day on Aug. 23, when Brooklynites will cast their votes for the state Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives.

The state was forced to delay the state Senate and Congressional primaries when a Court of Appeals struck down new district maps just two months before the original June primary date. Since the Assembly maps were not tossed at that time (though they have been since then,) the Assembly primary went forward as planned on June 28. Assembly maps will be redrawn before the 2024 election cycle.
