M. Spencer Green

Early voting in New York's gubernatorial primary will begin Saturday.

Enrolled political party members can cast an early vote through June 26. The election on June 28 will determine the Democratic and Republican nominees for governor, as well as the Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor.

Registered voters can cast an early ballot at any voting site in their county. On Long Island, there will be 27 sites in Nassau and 26 sites in Suffolk.

Early voting may not be done through an absentee ballot.

Of the Democratic candidates, New York Governor Kathy Hochul shows a strong lead in the polls, and has earned the endorsement of New York City Mayor Eric Adams.

U.S. Congressman Lee Zeldin of Long Island leads in the polls among the Republicans.
