Frequently Asked Questions
This year New Yorkers will have a new, simple way to vote for our local elected officials in primary and special elections for Mayor, Comptroller, Public Advocate, Borough President, and City Council. You can rank up to 5 candidates in order of preference: your 1st choice candidate, your 2nd choice candidate, and so on up to your 5th choice candidate.
You can, but your vote has more power if you rank. Ranking one candidate as your first, second and third choice is the same as leaving the second, third and other choices blank. You do not improve a candidate's chances of winning by voting for that candidate more
No. Ranking other candidates does not affect your first choice.
No. Your vote can count only once for your first choice. If you rank the same candidate first, second, and third, it is the same as leaving the second and third choices blank.
