NYS Democratic Presidential Primary Reinstated for June 23, 2020

The NYS Democratic Presidential primary, scheduled for June 23, 2020, has been reinstated due to court order. As you may be aware, the presidential primary was canceled last month over concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic. Recently, a federal judge ordered elections officials in New York State to hold its Democratic primary election in June and reinstate all qualifying candidates on the ballot.

Pursuant to Election Law Section 3-110.4, not less than ten working days before every election, every employer shall post conspicuously the Voting Notice in the place of work where it can be seen as employees come or go to their place of work. The notice must be kept posted until the close of the polls on election day. Therefore, employers should plan to post the voting notice at least 10 days in advance of June 23, 2020.
