You can find our full list of New York State endorsements here.

Because New York is a closed primary state, you must be registered as a Democrat to vote in the Democratic Primary on August 23. The Working Families Party endorses Democrats in the Democratic Primary who most align with the party’s values and will advance a progressive vision once in office.

Whether you are enrolled with the Democratic Party, Working Families Party, or another party, you can still vote on the WFP line (or any other ballot line you choose) in the general election in November. Working Families Party registrants can vote in WFP primaries, participate in judicial conventions, join our state committee, and petition to get our candidates on the ballot. However, you cannot vote in Democratic primaries.
