Analyzing some of the most competitive Queens races ahead of Aug. 23 primary election


With early voting for the Aug. 23 primary set to kick off Saturday, Aug. 13, Queens voters can cast their ballots for races including the U.S. House of Representatives and state Senate.

The first set of primary elections was held on June 28 for statewide elected positions, such as gubernatorial, lieutenant governor and the state Assembly.
