New York Conservative Party Strength Dipped in 2018

Ballot Access News

The New York Conservative Party remains a powerhouse among third parties in the U.S. It has been ballot-qualified starting in 1962, longer than any other party in any state other than the Democratic and Republican Parties. It always has nominees for a majority of all the congressional and legislative seats that are up, although most of them are also Republican nominees.
In 2018, its vote was lower than it had been for some time. In the U.S. House races it contested, and in the State Senate candidate races it contested, and in the Assembly races it contested, it polled a smaller share of the vote than at any time since 2008. Its gubernatorial percentage was the lowest since 2006.
