This Voter Guide is produced by the New York City Campaign Finance Board (CFB) to help New Yorkers make informed choices at the polls. The CFB creates an online Guide for every city election. This Guide lists all the candidates who were expected to be on the ballot at the time of posting and will be updated if the ballot changes.


The profiles and photos in this Guide were submitted to the CFB by the candidates, all of whom have affirmed that the information provided is true to the best of their knowledge. The views expressed in the candidate statements do not represent those of the CFB.
