A slow, but steady, turnout of Canarsie residents cast their ballots in the June 28th Primary Election in the race for Governor. In the Democratic primary, voters elected current Governor Kathy Hochul, receiving 67.8% of the vote, while Republicans cast their vote for Lee Zeldin, who won the GOP nomination with 42.5% of the vote. The two will face off in the November General Election. Voters also had the opportunity to vote early, for nine days, from June 18-26 at I.S. 68 Bildersee, where turnout was generally light.
Incumbent Anthony Delgado took the top spot in the race for Lieutenant Governor. There was no candidate for the Republican Party.
Monique Chandler-Waterman had a sweeping victory (79.53% of the vote) as the Democratic primary candidate for the 58th Assembly District seat. She won in the Special Election on May 24th, after the seat was vacated by long-term Assemblyman Nick Perry. Although Monique Allen-Davey (Republican, Conservative) lost the Special Election for the Assembly seat and the primary for this office was canceled, she’ll be on the ticket in November.
