More than 100,000 New Yorkers voted early in the 2024 primary elections, according to the state Board of Elections. Between June 15 and June 23, 102,883 residents cast their ballots. Nearly half of these, 46,241, were from New York City, while 56,642 came from other areas of the state.

In upstate New York, early voting numbers included 4,603 in Albany County and 3,877 in Onondaga County. The highest turnout day was June 23. This year’s early voting turnout was slightly lower than the 148,000 early votes cast in 2022, when two primary election dates were held due to redistricting lawsuits.

Early voting, which started in New York in 2019, allows residents to vote before Election Day. Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday.
