It’s Primary Day – Go Vote!

Good morning Young Democrats!


Happy (Congressional) Primary Day! The polls opened at 6 AM this morning, for those in congressional districts with contested primaries, and they close at 9 PM tonight. The big race everyone’s talking about? The rumble in uptown Manhattan and the Bronx between Congressman Charlie Rangel and State Senator Adriano Espaillat. Many of us have friends on both sides of this one, and as is our custom, MYD isn’t endorsing in this Democrat-on-Democrat primary — but no matter who you decide to support, make sure you vote today!

Check to verify which district you live in — and look up your pollsite — using this tool. Remember — as long as you’re there and waiting on line before 9 PM tonight, you have a legal right to vote. Questions or problems?Check here for more info.

Summer Events Coming Up:

Two big events are on this summer’s political calendar:

  • The Manhattan Democratic Party’s summer fundraiser — the second annual Demmy Awards (see below for an exclusive Young Dems offer for the Demmys) —  and
  • MYD’s own Young Gets It Done, our biggest fundraiser and party of the year! Save the date (August 13). See the schedule below for more details!
