September 13th is Primary Election Day in NYC!

supertuesday_crop.jpgTomorrow’s election will decide the overall winners of the many New York State Senate and Assembly seats that are on the ballot this year, given that in many districts vote overwhelmingly for one party over another. While this may not be ideal—please go vote if your party has a primary ballot in your district!

Our quick voter guide for tomorrow’s election:

1.   Verify Your NYC Voter Registration – this will let you see your current address and party registration on file.

2.   Find Your Polling Location – this will let you know where to go. Polls will be open across NYC from 6 am to 9 pm.

3.   View Your Ballot – Voter’s Edge NY provides an easy site where you can enter your registered home address and see who is on the ballot for your district.

4.   Learn About Key Races – As a starting point: the Gotham Gazette provides a great, detailed article about key races around NYC, and the New York Times also mentions some races. Other local publications and political clubs can also provide valuable information to help you select candidates you believe will best represent your interests and your community.

5.   Learn More About NYS Senate and NYS Assembly Races – If you’d like to learn more background on the overall picture for NYS Senate and Assembly, Ballotpedia is a helpful resource.

6.   Think About Running for Office – Not happy with your current options? Learn more about every office serving your current district at every level, and see what your options are for filing to run for an office!
