The New York State today passed legislation that creates one August primary date for state and Congressional races, saving taxpayers at least $25 million and bringing the state into compliance with federal election requirements for overseas balloting. The bill (S6604), sponsored by Senator Fred Akshar (R-C-I, Colesville), would designate the third Tuesday in August as the date to merge the current federal non-presidential primary held in June and the state primary held in September.
