New York state election, 1884

The 1884 New York state election was held on November 4, 1884, to elect two judges of the New York Court of Appeals, as well as all members of the New York State Assembly.

History

In 1884, the terms of the only two remaining original judges of the re-organized Court of Appeals expired. These were the only state officers to be elected statewide this year.

The Democratic state convention met on June 18 at Saratoga, New York. William E. Smith, of Clinton County, was Temporary Chairman and President. Democrat Charles A. Rapallo and Republican Charles Andrews were nominated for judges after a viva voce vote almost unanimously, thus endorsing the resolution of the Republican convention that "the Court of Appeals should be removed from politics."[1]
