Ranked Choice Voting

NYC now uses Ranked Choice Voting in special and primary elections for local offices. You can rank up to 5 candidates in order of preference, instead of choosing just one.

Early Voting

All registered voters can vote early in-person starting 10 days before Election Day. Your early voting site may be different from your Election Day poll site, so make sure to check before you go.

Voting by Mail

All registered voters can vote by mail due to the risk of contracting the coronavirus. You can select “Temporary illness or disability” as the reason for your request.

Election Day

All registered voters can vote in-person on Election Day, from 6am-9pm. If you’re worried about crowds, we recommend voting early.

What to Expect at Your Poll Site

When you get to your Early Voting location or Election Day poll site you will need to check-in, mark both sides of your ballot, then scan it in. Make sure to get your “I Voted” sticker and show it off!
