Early voting for the Tuesday primary started on Saturday and continues through Sunday at the Windmill Village 2 housing complex at 219 Accabonac Road East Hampton. In Southampton Town, early voting is at the Stony Brook Southampton campus at 70 Tuckahoe Road. The polls are open from noon to 8 p.m. today and tomorrow and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Regular polling locations will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday.

For registered Democrats in East Hampton, the ballot features the primary elections for governor and lieutenant governor of New York State. Gov. Kathy Hochul, Representative Tom Suozzi of New York’s Third Congressional District, and Jumaane Williams, the New York City Public Advocate, are vying for the Democrats’ nomination for governor. Lt. Gov. Antonio Delgado, Ana Maria Archila, and Diana Reyna are the candidates for lieutenant governor. Ms. Archila, Mr. Williams’s running mate, is a former co-executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy and a co-founder and coexecutive director of Make the Road New York and Make the Road Action. Ms. Reyna, Mr. Suozzi’s running mate, is a former deputy borough president for Brooklyn and a member of the New York City Council.

The Republican primary ballot includes candidates for governor and county clerk. In the former group are Representative Lee Zeldin of New York’s First Congressional District; Andrew Giuliani, a former Trump administration official and the son of former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani; Rob Astorino, a former Westchester County executive and his party’s 2014 nominee for governor, and Harry Wilson, a businessman. Candidates for the Republican nomination for county clerk are Judith Pascale and Vincent Puleo. Because of a protracted dispute over the redrawing of legislative districts following the 2020 census, New Yorkers will vote for candidates for the United States Congress and State Senate on Aug. 23.

In some parts of the state, there is also a primary election on June 28 for the State Assembly.
