The June 22 primary election day is finally here!
If you haven’t voted yet, make sure you’ve got a plan for the big day. You can vote in-person or simply drop your absentee ballot off at any voting location or Board of Elections office. June 22 is also the deadline to mail your absentee ballot (gotta get that June 22 postmark!). This is our chance to transform NYC—let’s #LEVELUP!
Find your voting location at findmypollsite.vote.nyc and remember election day voting locations are different from early voting. Poll sites are open 6am - 9pm.
Need help ranking your candidates, we’ve got you! The Soft Power voter guide ranks everything! You can use the guide in the voting booth too (our Instagram voter guide makes it easy). Share it with your fam, friends, and community!
We’ll have preliminary results from in-person voting the night of the election, but will have to wait until absentee ballots are counted the week of July 12 for final results—this allows for all absentee ballots to arrive at the BOE, voter rolls to be checked, and for oath envelope issue cure time. This wait will be excruciating, but it does ensure every vote is counted.
Remember, if no candidate gets over 50% of first round first choice votes, ranked choice voting will be triggered.
