Vote Today: Election Day

Today is Election Day and you can vote at the polls from 6AM to 9PM. 
Verify You Are Registered to Vote: https://voterlookup.elections.state.ny.us/ 
Find Your Poll Site: https://nyc.pollsitelocator.com/search 
Remember your Assembly District and Election District to skip the line at the front door and go straight to get your ballot and vote.

Frequent Issues on Election Day:
  • Name not in the book? Vote by affidavit ballot and register to update your voter registration, do not leave without voting.
  • Machines aren't working? Get a paper ballot anyway and cast it in the emergency ballot box, your ballot will be fed into the machine and counted later when it is working.
  • Don't Have ID? No problem. You don't need a driver's license or municipal identification to vote, just your signature. You can wear whatever you want covering any part of your body. If you are a first time voter just bring the letter you received from the BOE confirming your registration and reminding you to vote (or a utility bill, bank statement, paystub, government check or other government document with name and address).
Please contact my office to report complaints that I can use to improve the Board of Elections.

Shred-A-Thon

I am proud to sponsor shred-a-thons by The Upper Green Side with Council Member Garodnick so you can shred your documents that contain personal information and protect your privacy and identity. You bring the paper and the giant shredder truck turns it into microbits while you watch!  You can also bring compost, eyeglasses, corks, batteries and cords.
