Tomorrow is Election Day!
If you are a U.S. citizen, 18 years of age or older, a New York City resident, and are registered to vote, we encourage you to go to the polls tomorrow (Tuesday, November 5) and cast your vote. Not only does voting let you choose the people who will represent you in government, it allows you to have a say about policies that can affect your community.
This year, the City’s registered voters will elect a candidate for the position of Public Advocate and decide on five ballot questions that propose changes to the City Charter. In addition, if you live in Brooklyn’s City Council District 45—Flatbush, East Flatbush, Flatlands, Midwood, and Canarsie—you will be deciding who will represent your district on the City Council.
Whether it’s before you drop off your child at school, during your lunch break or after work – it’s important to make a plan in advance for when you can head to the polls. Remember: your vote is your voice, and every voice counts!
