New York state's Democratic presidential primary will again be held on June 23, after a federal district judge reinstated the contest on Tuesday.

The latest: New York Attorney General Letita James requested that Manhattan's federal appeals court review the judge's order on Wednesday, Bloomberg reports.

Flashback: New York's Board of Elections canceled the primary in late April after deciding that the risk of spreading the coronavirus for an election with only one contender — former Vice President Joe Biden — was too great.

  • Former 2020 candidate Andrew Yang promptly filed a lawsuit in response to the decision.
  • Sen. Bernie Sanders' campaign and supporters also lobbied against New York canceling its primary.

The big picture: Roughly a dozen states have postponed primaries in response to the pandemic or expanded mail-in voting options that follow social distancing guidelines.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced all domestic pandemic restrictions will be lifted in New Zealand from midnight Monday except in Auckland, where they'll be eased late Wednesday.

The big picture: Ardern delayed the country's election until Oct. 17 as authorities work to stamp out a coronavirus cluster in Auckland, after the re-emergence of COVID-19. There have been single-digit or zero domestic cases in NZ's most populous city since the government reintroduced restrictions.
