You might not just be voting for the Democratic or Republican presidential candidate of your choice on Tuesday, April 19.
Next week's closed primary will invite registered party members across New York State to vote for the next Leader of the Free World.
But New Yorkers living in the 59th, 62nd and 65th State Assembly districts will also be casting their ballots to fill vacant assembly seats in the state legislature.
If you live in Brooklyn's 59th State Assembly district (Marine Park, Gerritsen Beach, Mill Basin, Bergen Beach, Flatlands and Canarsie) you'll be voting for a candidate to replace Roxanne Persaud, a Democrat elected to the State Senate’s 19th District in November. The two contenders for her seat are:
► Jaime R. Williams, Persaud's former chief of staff, running on the Democratic, Independence and Women's Reform tickets.
► Jeffrey J. Ferretti, who campaigned unsuccessfully for the same seat in 2014, running on the Republican, Conservative and Reform tickets.
If you live in Staten Island's 62nd State Assembly district (Tottenville, Prince's Bay, Woodrow, Huguenot, Annadale, Rossville, Arden Heights, Eltingville, Great Kills, Richmond Town, New Dorp, Grant City and Lighthouse Hill), you'll be voting for Joseph Borelli's replacement. Borelli, a Republican, was elected to the Staten Island City Council in November. There's only one candidate nominated for the seat:
► Ronald Castorina Jr., running unopposed on the Republican, Conservative, Independent and Reform Party ticket.
If you live in Manhattan's 65th State Assembly district (the Financial District, Chinatown, the Lower East Side, Little Italy and Battery Park City), you'll be voting for an assembly member to replace former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, who'd held his seat for nearly 40 years before a federal jury found him guilty in November on charges of fraud, extortion and money laundering. Here are the four candidates in the running, nominated by their respective parties:
► Lester Chang (Republican Party), a businessman and naval reservist.
► Alice Cancel (Democratic Party), a longtime Democratic district leader from the Lower East Side, who works for Comptroller Scott Stringer.
► Yuh-Line Niou (Working Families Party), chief of staff for Queens Assemblyman Ron Kim.
► Dennis Levy (Green Party), president of New York State’s Committee to Legalize Marijuana.
