Cuomo Postpones New York Primary To June 23rd

ABC News reports:

New York — which has become the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic’s spread in the U.S.– will now be on June 23, the latest state to postpone or drastically change the status of its April 28 presidential primary.

Six states slated to vote that day have delayed or moved to expand absentee voting to continue on with their elections in the midst of the health emergency.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said during a press conference on Saturday that he’s postponing the state’s presidential primary from April 28 to June 23, the date of the state’s down ballot primary elections.
