We’re always in election season, example #927384

The City reports on what one attorney calls an “unusual electoral gauntlet”:

Queens voters are being asked to head to the polls five times in less than two years to select a borough president to replace — and succeed — Melinda Katz.

The race’s six current candidates are gearing up for a March special election to temporarily fill the seat. Then the results of the June primary and November general election will combine to determine who serves the final year remaining in Katz’ term, which ends Dec. 31, 2021.

That will be followed by next year’s primary and general election for a full four years in office, beginning Jan. 1, 2022. Katz recently stepped down after winning election as the borough’s district attorney.
