It will take three elections in 2020 to fill the seat left open by the resignation of Chris Collins. Here is a look at how the race for New York's 27th Congressional District is shaping up.
April 28: Special Election
Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday formally set the date for a special election to fill the remainder of Collins' unexpired term. The parties have designated their candidates.
• Democrat-Working Families: Nate McMurray/Democrat-Working Families
• Republican-Independence: Christopher L. Jacobs
Conservative line remains blank.
Winner immediately takes office and serves until Dec. 31, the remainder of Chris Collins' unexpired term.
June 23: GOP Primary
Candidates continue to maneuver, but three Republican candidates have said they will run in a GOP primary.
• Christopher L. Jacobs
• Beth A. Parlato
• Stefan I. Mychajliw Jr.
Winner faces Democratic candidate on Nov. 3.
Nov. 3: General Election
A regular election will be held in November for the two-year term that begins in 2021.
• Democrat, Republican, Conservative, Working Families and Independence: To be nominated later this year.
• Conservative: Beth A. Parlato*
*Parlato says she will not stay on the November ballot should another Republican win the June primary, so as not to split the vote against the Democrat.
