Federal Court Upholds Reinstated NY Presidential Primary Date
On May 19, The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit upheld the Southern District Court of New York’s decision to reinstate New York’s uncontested presidential primary on June 23.
The presidential primary was previously canceled by the New York Board of Elections after Sen. Bernie Sanders announced the end of his presidential campaign.
After the ruling, commissioners for the Board of Elections stated New York would not appeal the decision of the Second Circuit.
