Prospect Lefferts Gardens business Awesome Brooklyn! encouraged people to vote ahead of the 2020 election, Oct. 21, 2020.

New York voters have a lot of decisions to make this year. A slew of local offices — including the mayoralty — are up for grabs in 2021, due to term limits. And elections are coming up fast: The primaries are set for June 22.

Yes, June — nearly three months earlier than previously. 

Because there’s so much going on with so many races — not to mention the advent of ranked choice voting and the likelihood the pandemic will disrupt the voting process again — we’ve created a series of posts to help New Yorkers navigate the 2021 elections. 

We’ve packed them with resources — including basic information, like where and when to vote.

If you can’t find the answer to your 2021 election questions — even as simple as “Where do I go to vote?” — please let us know below.

We’ll continue to update these posts as we get more information and answer more of your questions.
