Did you know that the New York City primaries are less than a month away? That’s right! On Tuesday, June 22nd, New York City eligible voters have an opportunity to vote for respect and dignity for our communities.
There’s a lot of key races happening across the five boroughs, including New York City Mayor, Comptroller, Public Advocate, Borough Presidents, and City Council members.
Here are some key election-related dates to keep in mind for the upcoming weeks:
- Friday, May 28: Deadline to register online, by mail, and in-person to vote.
- Saturday, June 12: Early Voting begins in New York City and ends on Sunday, June 20th.
- Tuesday, June 15: Deadline to request a ballot by mail.
- Tuesday, June 22: Election Day! Polls open from 6am until 9pm.
If you’re eligible but haven’t had a chance to register yet, or need to update your registration, do so here today (the deadline is tomorrow)!
As you prepare to vote, we also want to make sure you have the information you’ll need to cast your ballot, especially since most New York City voters will be using ranked-choice voting for the first time. Check out this personal voter guide where you will learn more about each governmental position and ranked choice voting and learn about the candidates running to represent you!
The past year, we have faced, and overcome, many challenges in our civic engagement efforts. While for most of the pandemic we have not been able to conduct in-person outreach to voters, we have been calling and texting hundreds of thousands of voters across New York to remind them about making their voices heard, including all the ways they can vote—on election day, early voting, and via absentee ballot.
As we get closer to election day, we will be sending you reminders to make sure that you’re ready to vote in June for respect and dignity by standing up for candidates who share your values.
