Conservatives Reclaim Row C in 2010 Election

The New York State Conservative Party has reclaimed the third line on the ballot and can once again proudly proclaim “Vote row C for Conservative!” This feat was accomplished by garnering 232,264 Conservative votes in the Gubernatorial election, well ahead of other minor party totals. The Working Families Party will move to the fourth line, row D and the Independence Party will slip down the ballot to row E.

The Conservatives made their greatest gains in upstate New York, drawing many votes away from the Independence Party line.  The New York State Conservative Party was founded in 1962 to balance the continual lean to the left by both the Democrat and Republican parties and to promote sound Conservative values.
