Gotham Gazette

The Place for New York Policy and politics


Today is Election Day, and mayoral front-runner Bill de Blasio has soaked up most of the day's media coverage. It seems he's mostly been campaigning in Manhattan and Brooklyn. But he's provided some indication of what he's looking for in an education chancellor, even if he's not naming names. And his sleeping habits remain an odd source of interest. In case you forgot, Adolfo Carrión is still running for mayor, and he's fighting for a strong finish in his home turf of The Bronx. The casino ballot question is also a hot topic and means big rewards and risks for the state. See below for more voting info.

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Find your voting site and see a sample ballot: Who's On The Ballot
