The New York State presidential primary election is on Tuesday. Early voting continues through Saturday, March 30.

On the Democratic ballot are President Biden, who is seeking re-election; Marianne Williamson, and Representative Dean Phillips of Minnesota. Also on the Democratic ballot are seven delegates to the party’s national convention from the First Congressional District, with voters asked to choose up to seven. Delegates run in each congressional district and are allocated based on the performance of the presidential candidates within the district.

On the Republican ballot are former President Trump, former Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, former Senator Nikki Haley of South Carolina, and Vivek Ramaswamy. The latter three have suspended their campaigns for the Republican nomination for president.

Delegates’ names do not appear on the Republican ballot. Delegates will be allocated to the presidential candidate receiving the greatest number of votes in the primary election. 

Regular polling stations will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday.

The early voting site in East Hampton Town is Windmill Village, at 219 Accabonac Road in East Hampton. In Southampton, early voting happens at the State University at Stony Brook Southampton gym, at 70 Tuckahoe Road. Early voting happens Thursday and Friday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. There is no early voting on Sunday, which is Easter.

Green Giants: Here to Stay?

Long Island’s South Fork, known for beaches, maritime history, and fancy people, is also known for its hedges. Hedge installation and maintenance are big business, and there could be a whole book about hedges, with different varieties popular during different eras. In the last decade, for example, the “green giant,” a now ubiquitous tree, has been placed along property lines throughout the Hamptons. It’s here to stay, and grow, and grow.
