It's Primary Election Day

In this very, very off political year, even we had almost forgotten that today is primary election day in New York City. There are several races in Brooklyn, the most prominent of which is the one to elect a judge for the Kings County Surrogate Court. According to Gotham Gazette, which offers a very good primary guide, "No matter who wins the Democratic primary, it will make history. Either of the candidates, Diana Johnson and ShawnDya Simpson, would be Brooklyn’s first black surrogate." There will also be two primaries for the Civil Court, which has jurisdiction over civil cases involving amounts up to $25,000 and other civil matters referred by the state Supreme Court. There are also races for county party committees and other positions. Check Gotham Gazette for the full rundown.
