The 1984 United States presidential election in New York took place on November 6, 1984, as part of the 1984 United States presidential election. All 50 States and the District of Columbia participated in this election. Voters in New York chose thirty-six representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who selected President and Vice President.

New York was won by Ronald Reagan with 53.84% of the popular vote over Walter Mondale with 45.83%, a victory margin of 8.01%.[1]

In the 1984 election, New York turned out more Democratic than the nation at-large by about 10%. The county results indicate a typical (for the time)[2] split between the less-populated counties upstate, and the urban centers of New York City, Buffalo, Albany, and the college town of Ithaca. While Mondale carried the heavily populated boroughs of New York City overall with 61% of the vote, the strong Republican performance in many upstate counties as well as in the populated suburban areas around NYC was able to pull the state's electoral votes in favor of Reagan.
