Welcome to the Citizens Union 2022 Primary Voters Directory!

To help our supportive members prepare to vote, Citizens Union has been publishing an annual Voters Directory for over a century. Due to a recent court decision, New Yorkers will vote in two separate primary elections this year.

  • The primaries for statewide offices, State Assembly, Judges, and Party Positions will be held in June.
  • The primaries for the U.S. House of Representatives and State Senate will be held in August.

Citizens Union is publishing this online directory ahead of the June primary election. It includes a roster of Citizens Union’s preferred candidates in several key races, and information about the rigorous evaluation process and assessments of candidates. This page will be updated before the August primary election. 

Our past preference and endorsement decisions are also available.

This Voters Directory would not be possible without the hard work of members of the Citizens Union Board, Local Candidates Committee (LCC), staff and interns. 30 volunteer LCC members, 4 interns, and staff members formed nonpartisan interview teams and evaluated 13 candidates in 4 races for State Assembly. We thank them for contributing their time, energy, and expertise to interviewing and evaluating candidates. We thank you for your support, and hope you enjoy the latest edition of the Voters Directory.
