Watch: Know Before You Vote: Who Does What
Every four years, New Yorkers get to vote for the mayor, public advocate, and city comptroller. During the same election, voters in each borough get to elect or re-elect their borough president and their city council member. But 2021 is a special year: thanks to turnover due to term limits, we have the unique opportunity to elect all new leaders.
How do we ensure that we make the best possible choices during this pivotal election? On April 14, LMHQ, the League of Women Voters, the Alliance for Downtown New York, and the Downtown-Lower Manhattan Association hosted a workshop on the roles and responsibilities of NYC’s elected officials. Diane Burrows, Co-President of the League of Women Voters NYC provided all of the information a voter needs to understand about their jobs in order to elect the leaders who will guide us out of the Covid-19 crisis and allow New York to restore and reimagine itself.
This workshop was part one of our two-part Know Before You Vote series. Our next workshop, Know Before You Vote: Ranked Choice Voting will take place on Wednesday, May 12. You can register for the workshop here.
