On Tuesday, November 7,  New York City will vote in a primary election for City Council, judges, and ballot proposals. “In addition to City Council,” notes nycvotes.org, “there may be additional non-city offices [District Attorney, Civil Court Judges] on your ballot depending on your political party and where you live.”

After November 7, it’s all over. But over this past weekend (Saturday, October 28), it actually began in the form of Early Voting, which runs daily through Sunday, November 5.
