The District Leader is the on-the-ground party official who is tasked with voting at the state Convention for state-wide positions such as Governor and Lieutenant Governor, State Attorney General, State Comptroller, U.S. Senators from New York. While not always the case, the District Leader works with the Assemblymember and other elected officials to help ensure that:
- The polls are run in an orderly fashion on election day;
- That the party's required poll worker positions are filled;
- That judicial delegate positions are filled; and
- The county committee positions are filled.
As a member of the Executive Committee, the District Leader votes within that body to select the County Chair, endorse candidates for election for elective offices within the county (including judicial offices), as well as city-wide, state-wide, and national offices and works to help elect those candidates.
