Polls are open across New York state as Election Day voters will cast their ballots in the presidential primaries. 

The primaries are held across all 50 states over the course of several months to determine candidates for individual parties for the presidential election in November. 

According to Spectrum News, a total of 100,756 registered party voters in the state took part over the eight days of early voting, which ranged from March 23 to March 30. Roughly 55,879 of those votes were from New York City, according to the city’s Board of Elections. 

Incumbent Joe Biden is in the lead for the Democratic nomination for president, and Donald Trump is in the lead for the Republican nomination. Their leads are so large that the contests are already essentially over, although multiple primaries and caucuses across the country remain on the calendar.

Marianne Williamson, who is on the ballot, is also an active candidate in the Democratic presidential primary.

Other candidates, including Nikki Haley, Vivek Ramaswamy and Chris Christie on the Republican side, and Dean Phillips on the Democratic side, have dropped out of the race but remain on the ballot.

Connecticut, Rhode Island and Wisconsin are among the states also holding presidential primaries on Tuesday.

The presidential nominee isn’t the only option on the ballot for some. Voters in the Democratic primary will also be voting for people that their respective congressional districts will send to the Democratic National Convention as delegates this summer in Chicago.

Despite the ballot being small, some parties are hoping to use the opportunity to make a statement. 

Last week, the New York Working Families Party encouraged Democratic voters to leave their ballots blank in response to the Biden administration’s handling of the ongoing Israel-Hamas war.

If you didn’t go out to vote yet, you still have an opportunity to head to the polls. Polls on Election Day are open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. across the state.
