Early voting for the June 2021 primaries kicks off this weekend for some key races in New York City including mayor, comptroller, public advocate, City Council and borough presidents.
From Saturday, June 12, until Sunday, June 20, voters can go to cast their ballots ahead of the Tuesday, June 22 primary. This year’s primary elections will use ranked choice voting, which allows voters to rank up to five candidates for each city office. The mayor recently used a pizza topping metaphor to explain ranked choice voting. Voting.nyc also put out a helpful video to guide people heading to the polls.
