Remember to Vote in Congressional Primaries Tomorrow


If you live in Bay Ridge (Congressional District 11), Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Crown Heights, Brownsville, PLG, Flatbush, Midwood, Sheepshead, Gerritsen Beach, Marine Park – Congressional District 9 – Tuesday, June 26th is Primary Day.

Historically very few eligible voters turn up – in D9 only 4% of registered Democrats voted last time there was a primary (in 2012), effectively electing our current representation – in a heavily Democratic district like this primary generally determines the November general election outcome.

In District 9, it is a race between incumbent Yvette Clarke and  Adem Bunkeddeko on the Democratic side. Clarke has the establishment, Bunkeddeko has the New York Times endorsement, saying its time for a change. You can see their debate on NY1 and Brian Lehrer did a segment with each. Whoever wins, likely to win the general election.

In District 11, its incumbent Dan Donovan versus Michael Grimm on the Republican side.
