Local Elections: A Panel on How and Why to Vote

April 14, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

This year, New Yorkers will elect a new mayor, comptroller, borough presidents, and city council members. Important issues like jobs, education, and housing will be on the ballot, and New Yorkers will have the option to rank their top 5 candidates for special elections and primaries. With so much at stake in local elections and the implementation of a new system of voting, public education is even more important than ever this year.
Join DemocracyNYC, Women Creating Change, and the Civic Engagement Commission on Wednesday, April 14 at 1 PM for Local Elections: How and Why to Vote, an hour-long virtual panel that will feature government, advocacy, and non-profit leaders and cover topics like Ranked Choice Voting, Our City, Our Vote, and the importance of voting in local elections.
Participating Orgs:
DemocracyNYC, Women Creating Change, ABNY, Center for Law and Social Justice at Medgar Evers College, Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs

I pledge to rank my vote because ranked-choice voting allows me to vote my preference.
