We’ve been waiting for (or dreading) this day for 4 years, and it’s finally here! It’s the final hours before polls close so we thought you’d like to see some inspiring political graffiti and street art. From Occupy Wall Street to Black Lives Matter to Me Too to gentrification to many more issues and causes, you can feel the pulse of Bushwick just by walking the streets.
There’s still time to vote in New York City if you haven’t already voted. Polls close at 9 p.m. tonight. From my experience earlier this week, it seems pretty safe – there’s social distancing throughout, everyone is wearing a mask, they give you a combination pen/stylus to check you without touching anything, then fill out your ballot and stick it into the scanner. And you’re done, except putting on your “I voted” sticker, the fashion accessory of the moment. Nothing more to do but watch the returns come in.
If you don’t know where your polling place is (it’s not always the one closest to where you live), then head to the NYC Board of Elections poll finder at https://findmypollsite.vote.nyc/
To see who is on the ballot in your district, go to https://vote.nyc/page/understanding-ballot There you can see the candidates as well as a sample ballot.
