The guide will cover races for state court elections to trial courts of superior jurisdiction (Supreme, County, Family, and Surrogate’s Courts) as well as District Courts, City Courts, and the Civil Courts of the City of New York.

The New York State Judicial Candidate Voter Guide will be accessible through the court system’s website at www.nycourts.gov/vote starting October 24th.
