New York


New York! Pizza! The Yankees! A big ass waterfall! Sorry for screaming, it's the New Yorker in me. Look, we don't need to tell you how big of a deal you are. I mean, you're home to 1 out of every 38 people in this country. With a rep that huge, you have to set an example by making your voice heard in the polls. Face it, without democracy, your government wouldn't have been able to vote against bringing e-scooters to NYC. Here's everything you need to know about voting in the Empire State.


If you live in NYC (or The Big Apple, as all *real* New Yorkers call it), you have a city council election! Even if you live elsewhere in the state (and we know you all exist), you have county level and local elections for important positions like District Attorney.
