What Time Will You VOTE Tuesday?

Tomorrow—Tuesday, September 9, is the New York State Primary Election. An earlier New NY23rd article “NYS Primary Candidate Information”  summarized information about the three candidates for Governor, and the two candidates for Lt. Governor. It has links to articles about the candidate and their websites. It also gives you a link to your county’s Board of Elections website to find out about the other primary races in your county.

Polls are open from Noon to 9 PM.

In the past week my household has received mail political ads for Governor Cuomo and Kathy Hochul for Lt. Governor. We received a phone “Push Poll” and two reminders to vote for Zephyr Teachout and Timothy Wu. We also received a phone “Push Poll” for Rob Astorino for Governor, which might confuse voters since Mr. Astorino will NOT be on any ballot tomorrow.

Primary elections always have a low voter turnout. New NY 23rd urges you to get out and vote, and bring a friend or two with you. Celebrate—> Go out to lunch or dinner or maybe a movie.  Your vote is more valuable in a low turn out election. In case you were wondering, the General Election will be only 56 days after the Primary.

I have included some reminders:

Let's hear all sides of the issues, not just what the candidates want us to hear.

    My copy of the Fannie Farmer cookbook, revised by Marion Cunningham in 1990, includes a recipe for Election Cake, of which Ms. Cunningham says: “Loaf cakes made with yeast were popular in New England…as far back as the early 1800s. Election Cake (also known as Dough Cake and March Meeting Cake) often was baked on election days and allegedly sold and served only to those who voted a straight ticket.” Perhaps it’s time to recommence the tradition of post-poll cake with the neighbors (New Englanders sometimes had the best ideas!)
