Attention, all New Yorkers registered as Republicans or Democrats—it's your day to vote in the citywide primary! There are primaries for Mayor and Public Advocate, plus a number of contested City Council seats and a heated race for Brooklyn District Attorney.
Do you need to know where you can vote? A number of polling locations have changed (to increase accessibility, the Board of Elections explained) since 2016, affecting about 200,000 voters—find your location here!

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has a voter hotline set up for anyone who encounters any problems at the polls—his office says New Yorkers "can call 800-771-7755 or email email@example.com at any time today between 6:00 AM and 9:00 PM. The hotline will be staffed by attorneys and staff in the office's Civil Rights Bureau."
"The right to vote is at the heart of American democracy, and my office is deeply committed to ensuring that all eligible voters have equal access at the polls," Schneiderman said. "I urge all New Yorkers to immediately contact my office should they face any barriers or issues when trying to cast their vote."
There are also new NYC "I Voted" stickers!
Don't forget to vote in the New York primary today! And that Ted Cruz was spankin' it on 9/11.
