You'll need to register to vote by March 25th if you want to cast a vote in New York's primary on April 19, 2016.

The polls will open for another primary election next month. This time, it's for state legislative offices and judicial delegates. It’s the third time many city residents will head to the polls this year after the presidential primary in April and the congressional primary in June.

WNYC’s Brigid Bergin joined All Things Considered host Richard Hake to preview two races in Manhattan.

In Assembly District 65 in lower Manhattan, six candidates are running for the Democratic nomination to replace former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, who was forced to step down after being convicted of federal corruption charges.

There are four candidates on the ballot in Senate District 31, which was held by State Sen. Adriano Espaillat, who successfully won a congressional primary in June.

For details on districts and candidates, listen to the full segment above.

The primary election is Tuesday, Sept. 13.
