Today is primary day in New York State. The polls open at 6am and stay open until 9pm.
There are primary races for the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General as well as a bunch of statewide races for State Senate and State Assembly.
In NYC, and to a lesser extent in New York State, the primary can be the election as the city and state lean left.
So I encourage everyone in New York State to go out to the polls and vote today.
It all comes down to voting in a democracy. Marching feels great. Tweeting feels great. Polls make the news. But voting is the political action that really counts unless you can give gobs of money to candidates which most voters cannot and don’t do.
I plan to get to my polling place early on the way to an early start to the workday.
I always feel great pulling that lever. I hope you do too.
