1965 New York state election
|Elections in New York State|
Judge Marvin R. Dye would reach the constitutional age limit of 70 years at the end of the year.
In December 1964, the assembly and senate districts were re-apportioned. This time the legislators were 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 1966; from 1 to 150 thereafter) instead of apportioned by county and numbered inside the county (previously 150 districts). This was the only general election of state legislators in an odd-numbered year after 1937.
The Republican candidate was elected.
