ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New Yorkers are set to make important decisions in elections to pick mayors, prosecutors, county leaders and other local positions. Voters in New York City will pick a new mayor Tuesday. In Buffalo, a mayoral race between a moderate and self-described socialist has gained attention as the latest fight over how Democrats should best tackle the plight of the poor and working class. Voters statewide will get to decide whether to tweak the state’s constitution to pave the way for election and environmental reforms favored by advocacy groups and the Democratic-led Legislature.
On Long Island there are some big seats up for grabs in today’s election, including County Executive in Nassau and District Attorney in both Suffolk and Nassau. County Legislator seats are also being chosen today Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Polling locations are open through 9pm. To find your poll site, log onto voterlookup.elections.ny.gov
