Even though the April 28 New York State Presidential Primary Election seems far off, at least two Presidential Campaigns have contacted chairs of the NY 23rd Democratic Committees seeking democrats to pass petitions to get their candidate on the Ballot. Each candidate needs to get 5000 signatures state-wide. Passing the petitions can start on Tuesday, December 31. Only registered NYS Democrats can sign them; a person can only sign one candidate’s petition. The campaigns will tell you when they need the signed petitions back to them. You can get a list of democrats who live near you from your County Board of Elections. There is no cost if they send the lists to you digitally.
Early Voting Dates are Saturday April 18 to Sunday, April 26. Each county will determine their times for voting.
Not only will you help the candidate to get on our ballot, you are promoting him or her, and informing the voters about the Presidential Primary.
If you are supporting Bernie Sanders, and are willing to pass petitions for him contact Emily Adans at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are supporting Amy Klobuchar, and are willing to pass petitions for mer contact Bruce Levine at email@example.com.
If any one has information about who to contact for other candidates, please leave that information as a comment.
More information about the Presidential Primary will be coming soon.
