Election Day is today: Here’s the City Council races to watch when you head to the polls

What has so far been a sleepy 2023 election season will be capped off by the Nov. 7 general election on Tuesday.

On the ballot are races for City Council, judgeships and two proposed amendments to the state constitution. New Yorkers will have to choose one candidate on Election Day instead of ranking them, as the general election does not employ ranked-choice voting (RCV).

The races for all 51 City Council seats are occurring this year, just two years after they were last on the ballot, because the council maps were redrawn last year. Normally races for council occur every four years.
