READY OR NOT?
A bill introduced by Assembly Speaker Silver
sets Tuesday, June 24 as Primary Day for
Congressional, State and party offices.

Senate action is pending.
The bill will likely pass and be signed
into law, because consolidating all
primaries in one day saves money.

and opposition political parties, who
fail to prepare, off guard, thereby
Odds are that we will have the June Primary.
So, prospective candidates and political
party organizations should prepare ASAP.
The official political calendar is not
available, but a preliminary reading of
the legislation indicates the following:
Tues Feb 25 will likely be First day to
party designating petitions.
