"We Just Want You to Vote!"

Posted by Eric Hoppel on

If Election Night is the Super Bowl of politics, then the New York playoffs are this Thursday. Sorry. The NFL season is underway and I have football on the brain.

But it’s time to talk politics. New York’s primary elections are held on Thursday, September 13th. You’re probably used to voting on a Tuesday, but the primaries were moved this year out of respect for the 9/11 anniversary and Rosh Hashanah.

New York has a closed primary. That means you must be enrolled in a political party to vote.

The League of Women Voters of New York State  is a non-partisan organization dedicated to making sure everyone who wants to vote is able to do so. They publish an annualVoting Guide to give you all the information you need to make an intelligent choice. Here is a brief look at the League and what they do.
