Voters, don't forget to go to the polls: New York State holds its statewide primaries today.

Here in the new 19th Congressional District, the race is on between Joel Tyner and Julian Schreibman, both vying for the Democratic ticket. The Republican nominee, incumbent Congressman Chris Gibson, has no challenger on the ballot.

Edited to add: Local GOP voters also have a U.S. Senate race to vote in. Three challengers are seeking to run on the Republican ticket against U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand this fall: Manhattan lawyer Wendy Long, Nassau County comptroller George Maragos and Congressman Bob Turner (R-Queens).

The Associated Press is predicting abysmally low turnout in this race. Get out there and prove 'em wrong, folks.
