Roughly 100,000 took part in early voting for this year's federal and state primary elections in New York, according to state Board of Elections numbers.

Between June 15 and June 23, 102,883 residents voted early.

Nearly half of those — 46,241 — came from New York City voters. About 56,642 came from voters in the other parts of the state. Statewide, the highest turnout day was the last day, June 23.

In upstate's more populous counties, 1,031 people voted early in Erie County, 1,995 voted early in Monroe County, 4,603 voted early in Albany County and 3,877 voted early in Onondaga County.

There were roughly 148,000 early votes cast in 2022, the last time there were primary elections for congressional offices, but those occurred in August concurrently with state Senate offices after redistricting lawsuits triggered two separate primary election dates in New York.

Early voting first came into practice in New York in 2019.

Polls are open this Tuesday in New York from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
