With a slew of retirements and other shakeups leaving seats open in the state Legislature, and a variety of challenges to incumbents from both the center and the left, there are no shortage of state legislative primaries to watch this Election Day. No part of the state is being left out: from Long Island to Rochester, Democrats are facing off either to determine the likely next state representative, or to move a candidate along to a competitive general election in November.

Progressives are looking to increase their numbers in the state Legislature after a lackluster 2022, with both the Working Families Party and the Democratic Socialists of America expending resources to elect their preferred candidates. But moderates and the establishment are also looking to regain ground, with challenges to progressive incumbents that have both sides on the defensive this cycle. Sprinkle in some local political fighting among power brokers, and a couple competitive Republican primaries, and you have the recipe for an exciting summer election night across New York.
