Get Your “I Voted” Sticker September 13th!

Hey Greenpoint, it’s time to get out the vote! Traditionally, elections are held on Tuesdays but this week’s Gubernatorial Primary will take place on Thursday, 9/13 (TOMORROW) so as not to conflict with commemorations of 9/11.

That means you have a few more days to brush up on your choices: 

First up, Governor Andrew Cuomo will face off against Cynthia Nixon for the Democratic nomination. The Republican contender, Marc Molinaro, is running unopposed.

In the New York Primary, you can vote separately for Governor and lieutenant Governor. For that office, incumbent Kathy Hochul is taking on Jumaane Williams.

There are also 4 contenders for Attorney General: Letitia James, Sean Patrick Maloney, Zephyr Teachout and Leecia Eve.

All 150 seats in the State Assembly, and all 63 seats in the state senate are also up for election in 2018.

You can find information on every candidate running in tomorrow’s primary here, and you can find your poling place here!

Have fun exercising your civic right, Greenpoint!
