We have updated our election website to include the most recent dates for both the primary and general elections. Note the lowest unit charge period for the special general election between Democrat Thomas Suozzi and Republican Mazi Melesa Pilip (to replace George Santos) began December 15. The presidential primary election will take place on April 2. Therefore, the lowest unit charge period will begin on February 17, 2024. The remaining primaries take place on June 25, so the lowest unit charge period begins on May 11. The dates are contained in the chart below.
As a general rule, the lowest unit charge period begins 45 days before a primary election and 60 days before a general election.
