ALBANY, N.Y. — New York voters can expect new ballot lines this November next to the familiar Democratic and Republican parties.

State law allows candidates to run on multiple lines, allowing them to get their names on the ballot two, three, even four times.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo intends to run on the Democratic line, the Working Families Party line and two others.

His Republican opponent, Rob Astorino, will compete on the GOP line, the Conservative line and another he hopes to add called “Stop Common Core."

More lines are expected.
Democratic state Sen. Ted O'Brien announced Monday a new “Upstate Tax Relief" line for his race.

Michael Carey, an advocate for the disabled, wants to create another line for a new “Life and Justice Party."

Petitions to create ballot lines are due Tuesday, Aug. 19.
