Primary switched to Thursday

September 12, 2012

NEW YORK STATE — The second Tuesday in November is traditionally election day for Primary Races in New York State, but this year the day would fall on September 11, the day the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were attacked in 2001, and a third plane crashed into a field in Pennsylvania.
Because of the timing, the New York State Senate and Assembly decided to move the voting day to Thursday this year. Voting will take place from noon until 9 p.m.
