One Vote. One Election. One Future.

It's election day in New York! Polls opened at 6am this morning and will stay open until 9pm tonight. If you're thinking your vote doesn't matter this year, think again! The stakes are high for many issues--the economy, education, the environment, and reproductive health. Your vote is your power! Make sure your voice is heard!

Where/How/When do I vote?
  • In NYS, polls are open until 9pm tonight. If you don't live in NYS, look up your poll info.
  • Need to know where your polling place is, who the candidates are, how to use the new ballot systems, or need any info about voting in your state? Check out Vote411, a really awesome nonpartisan site by the League of Women Voters.
Have a problem at the polls?
  • Not on the voter list? Make sure you're at the right polling place, then ask for a provisional ballot.
  • Need legal help? Call 1-866-OUR-VOTE, email help@866ourvote.org, or go to the Election Protection website. 
  • Need a ride to the polls? Call your local party headquarters--all major parties and some third parties offer rides to the polls regardless of if you are a registered party member, who you are voting for, etc.
