New York state election, 1965
|Elections in New York|
Judge Marvin R. Dye would reach the constitutional age limit of 70 years at the end of the year.
In 1965, the assembly and senate districts were re-apportioned and both houses were renewed, the members being elected for an exceptional one-year term (session of 1966). From this election on, the assembly districts are all numbered statewide (from 1 to 165; in 1965) instead of apportioned by county, and numbered inside the county (150 districts). This was the only general election of state legislators in an odd-numbered year after 1937.
The Republican candidate was elected.
