Primary election day bill passes assembly

By WKTV News

(WKTV) -  A bill proposed by Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi to establish a primary election day in New York has passed the assembly.

The bill is expected to save state and local governments about $50 million. The bill is set to unify both federal and state offices and will establish every fourth Tuesday in June as New York's primary election day.

Brindisi also says that combining election dates is likely to increase voter participation and should ensure all votes are accounted for.
