What's on the ballot?

Registered voters can make their voices heard in the General Election starting today.

Positions on the ballot include: NYC Mayor, NYC Comptroller, Borough President, Public Advocate, District Attorney, and City Council.
You can also vote on five ballot proposals, which would amend the state Constitution, if passed. The ballot proposals are:

  • Question 1: The Redistricting Process. This proposal would reform the redistricting process that determines representation across the state.
  • Question 2: Right to Clean Air, Clean Water, and a Healthful Environment. This proposal would provide the right to clean air, clean water, and a healthful environment to all New Yorkers.
  • Question 3: Same-Day Voter Registration. This proposal would expand voting rights and remove the requirement that a person register to vote at least 10 days before an election.
  • Question 4: No-Excuse Absentee Voting. This proposal would allow the State Legislature to pass new laws that give more New Yorkers the option to vote by mail without providing an excuse.
  • Question 5: Civil Court's Claim Limit. This proposal increases the jurisdictional limit of the NYC Civil Court from $25,000 to $50,000, reducing the burden on the NYS Supreme Court.
Don't forget to check your voter registration status and learn about what's on your ballot! After that, be sure to tell your friends and family too.
