2022 Primary Election Endorsements

Our ability to strengthen our public health infrastructure, our social safety net, and take action to support frontline workers depends on electing candidates who support nurses, healthcare professionals, and our communities. As a statewide union of nurses and healthcare professionals, NYSNA has made endorsements throughout the state. These candidates share nurses' values of community and compassion and are committed to uplifting working people everywhere. 

In 2022, New York will hold two primary elections: statewide offices and State Assembly races on June 28, and US Congressional and State Senate races on August 23. Voting in both primaries is important to ensure our voices are in Albany and beyond! We encourage members to stay informed and engaged and return to this page for the latest deadlines and NYSNA voter information.
