A federal appeals court has upheld a lower court ruling reinstating the presidential primaries in New York after Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Attorney General Letitia James, sought to block the vote from happening. Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, will be on ballots on June 23, of course, but so will Andrew Yang and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
Citing the COVID-19 pandemic, Gov. Cuomo planned to cancel the presidential primaries. However, local and Congressional primaries, set to take place over much of the state, were given the go-ahead. New York voters would have still cast ballots, they just wouldn’t be able to fill out the top of the ballot line.
