What are the 2024 elections for?

The 2024 elections included a race for City Council in April. The general election will be November 5, 2024.

Is there anything different this year?

You will be able to request absentee ballots for the primary and general elections. Additionally, this year, NYC will be using “rank-choice voting” for the second time.

Why is it important that I vote?

Just the act of voting itself sends a clear message to elected officials that we are “in the game” and should be taken seriously, regardless how we vote.

Why is strong voter turnout important for our community?

Our vote is our community’s voice. It is important that we show our elected officials that we vote in large numbers and that our needs are addressed.
