and Schenectady Counties
The 2016 New York Presidential Primary Election will be held on April 19th. Polls will be open from in Albany from noon to 9:00pm. Some counties around New York City open at 6:00am - more information can be found on the Voter Information tab.
This year's primary is unusual in its importance. Typically, the nomination for either party would have been decided by now. However, neither party has yet to choose their nominee this year. This has resulted in recent visits to the Capital District by all five current candidates in both parties:
- Hillary Clinton in Cohoes on April 4th
- Ted Cruz in Scotia on April 7th
- Bernie Sanders in Albany on April 11th
- John Kasich in Troy and Saratoga on April 11th
- Donald Trump in Albany on April 11th
On the tabs above, you can find links to the candidates' positions, political and professional histories, and standing in the primaries so far. If you would like more information about the race that is not featured here, please visit us at the reference desk or set up an appointment with a librarian.
