TWO CRUCIAL ELECTIONS on August 23rd will effect control of Antonio Delgado’s seat in Congress.
NY19 SPECIAL ELECTION
(Election to Complete Current NY19 District Term):
Antonio Delgado, appointed NY Lt. Governor, was sworn in to this new position on May 25, leaving his congressional seat vacant. This triggers NYS Law calling for a Special Election. Voters will determine who completes Delgado’s term serving the current NY19 District.
There will be no primary for this Special Election. NYS Law calls for the Party Chairs of the current NY19 Election District to select their party’s candidate. Democrats have selected Pat Ryan*. Pat will face Republican Marc Molinaro in this Special Election on Tuesday, August 23rd.
NY19 DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY ELECTION
(Election for New NY19 District Term starting 2023):
There will also be a Democratic Primary on August 23rd. Democrats Josh Riley* and Jamie Cheney* are running for this seat. Voters will determine which Democrat will face Republican Marc Molinaro in the General Election on November 8. This election will be the next term of the newly drawn NY19.

NOTE: We have different candidates for these two elections because of redistricting. Pat Ryan lives in the current NY19 district, but was redistricted out of the new NY19. Josh Riley and Jamie Cheney (running in the primary) both live in the new NY19 district.
