Vote in the June Primary Election
What is Participatory Budgeting?
Participatory Budgeting (PB) is a democratic process where community members decide how to spend part of a public budget. PB gives communities real power over real money.
PB started in Porto Alegre, Brazil as an anti-poverty measure, and has since spread to over 7,000 cities around the world. PB has been used to spend state, county, and city budgets, as well as those of schools, housing authorities, and other public institutions.
You have the right to vote in your language. You may bring an interpreter to the voting booth. It can be a friend, family member or poll worker. It can't be your employer or union representative.
This June, NYC will vote on candidates for local offices including City Council, District Attorney (Bronx, Queens, Staten Island), Civil Court, Delegates to the Judicial Convention, and Party positions. To learn more, visit NYC Votes.
The CEC's poll site service list for the 2023 June Primary will be updated as information becomes available.
