What could be more important than fulfilling your civic duty and participating in the democratic to select the leaders of our local, county, and state government? Besides the fact that it is key to our society to be able to function, it's just one of the most American things we can do - vote.

The 2023 New York State General Election is scheduled for Tuesday, November 7, 2023, and early voting kicks off ten days before.
