Cuomo Calls Special Elections for Sept. 13 [Update]

As expected, Governor Andrew Cuomo has called for all of the impending special elections for New York’s regularly-scheduled primary day, September 13.

In addition to the special election for Anthony Weiner’s vacated congressional seat in New York’s Ninth District, there are special elections for six Assembly seats, most of which were caused by appointments to Cuomo’s administration.

Those districts are: the 23rd; the 27th; the 54th; the 73rd; the 116th and the 144th.

Update: Capital Tonight notes Cuomo waited to announce these elections just long enough to give control of the nominating procedure to county leaders, rather than primary voters.
