There are only about four hours left for Bronxites to hit the polls this Election Day.  

While most of today’s local races are expected to be blowouts — many around New York City have their eyes on one race to watch in the Bronx: the Council District (CD) 13 race in the East Bronx between incumbent Democrat Marjorie Velázquez and her Republican challenger Kristy Marmorato. CD-13 includes the neighborhoods of Throggs Neck, Allerton, Morris Park, City Island and Pelham Parkway.
