     On June 22, and during early voting from June 12 - 20, NYC voters will vote in a very important primary election. This will help decide the outcomes of many critical races for Mayor, Public Advocate, Comptroller, Borough Presidents, and all 51 City Council seats.
     The June primary is also the first time that Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) will be used citywide. RCV is a system of voting in which you can rank up to five candidates in order of preference. This new system will be used in all of NYC's primary and special elections.
