The federal primary in New York state is less than two weeks away on June 26. Voters will decide on a Democratic candidate to run for the 25th congressional seat.

However, our news partner, News10NBC spoke to many people on Wednesday who told us they didn't know the election is coming or who is even running in this election.

"I haven't heard any information on it at all," said Toni Harrell, Rochester resident.

Emily Onyan of Webster had this to say: "It makes a little uncomfortable...I think I should have some idea who could possibly be my vote."

The 25th congressional seat was left vacant in April by the death of Congresswoman Louise Slaughter.

The Fairport congresswoman had held the seat for 30 years. Now, it's up for grabs.

"NY is such a big state and this is such an important election," said Emma Klements of Rochester. "I understand smaller elections that people aren't paying attention. But this isn't a small one, this is very big for the residents here. It's really weird and it's not okay."

Pat McDermott says he has seen information on social media, but still doesn't know who to vote for.

"I guess I don't actually know if there's a debate or not...it would be nice to see them talk to each other about what they policy proposals are about."

News10NBC: "What would you say to the candidates right now?"

Harrell: "I would say make yourself known, stand up, give us some information, tell us what you stand for, what you can do for the community, how are you going to take her values and move them forward."

In case you don't know, the four Democrats who are running for the 25th congressional seat are listed below:

Joe Morelle, State Assembly Majority Leader

Brighton Town Council Member Robin Wilt
