New York’s General Election: Get Out and Vote!
Early voting in New York began on Saturday, October 29th. This general election, there are seats up for election statewide as well as proposals that affect the New York City Charter.
The position of New York Governor is on the ballot, with Governor Kathy Hochul and Congressman Lee Zeldin running for office. Hochul stepped into the role after former governor Andrew Cuomo resigned.
In addition to the Governor’s office, the other positions that New Yorkers will vote for include U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, Comptroller, State Senate, State Assembly, New York State Supreme Court, Civil Court, and Surrogate Court.
On the back of the ballot, there are four proposals that New Yorkers must vote on. Of these four proposals, one will apply to New York as a state while the other three will have a direct effect on the city as it would result in amendments to New York’s City Charter.
Election Day is Tuesday, November 8th. Poll hours are 6am to 9pm.
