Voter Guide




The purpose of the Voter Guide is to provide voters, regardless of political affiliation, with up-to-date, accurate, and balanced information on the candidates’ positions on a wide range of significant issues. Primary elections for statewide officials and state legislators were held on Tuesday, September 9. General elections for statewide officials, state legislators, and members of the U.S. House of Representatives will be held Tuesday, November 4. Please note that under New York law, a voter may only vote in a primary election held by his/her own party. If you are a registered independent, or if there are no primaries involving your political party on September 9, you will not be eligible to vote in the September 9 primaries.

The Voter Guide provides a snapshot of the candidates’ positions, as evidenced by questionnaires, public comments, campaign web sites, and voting records.

New Yorker’s Family Research Foundation (NYFRF) is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization that does not endorse political parties or candidates. Thus, none of the information contained within the Voter Guide should be construed as encouraging support for, or opposition to, any party or candidate.
