Yes, primary day is really taking place on June 26 — and it’s going to be a mess at the polls. Here’s why:

• The state moved the September primary back three months to comply with a new federal law designed to accommodate military and overseas voters.

• At the same time, Albany remapped all assembly, state senate and congressional lines to jive with population shifts outlined in the census, so there are many Brooklyn residents who don’t quite know who their federal legislators are.

• Cementing the new district lines was delayed because of partisan infighting in Albany, sending candidates into a tizzy. Many opponents in tight congressional and U.S. Senate races started campaigning earlier than ever before, and some began campaigning not really knowing how big, or how small, their districts were.
