Presidential Primary Questions??? Here is information on the NYS Presidential Primary in New York State Ballot.

The purpose of the Presidential primary is to select delegates to a national convention of a political party. Voters must be registered in the Democratic or Republican party to vote in that party's primary. In New York State, the Republican and Democratic Presidential primaries are organized differently.

Republican Voters will be issued a ballot with candidates listed. The voter will choose one candidate, but will not vote for delegates. Please be advised that some candidates have withdrawn from the race but are still listed on the New York Ballot. Delegates for the Republican Party's national convention are selected by the state's Republican Committee.

Democratic Voters will be asked to vote for the Presidential candidate AND delegates for the democratic convention. The delegate distribution will be determined by the number of votes each Presidential candidate receives. Based on the population of your congressional district, you will vote for 5-7 delegates (indicated on the ballot instructions). Outside of NYC, the delegates listed in the same row across from the Presidential candidate are the delegates for that candidate. In NYC, the delegates are listed in a separate column next to the column of Presidential candidates; the name of the candidate that they are pledged to support is indicated under the delegate's name.

Go to Voter 4:11 for information on candidates and to find your polling place location and voter registration form.
