NYC Votes is an initiative of the New York City Campaign Finance Board, the independent city agency that ensures local elections are fair, inclusive, and open. They boost participation among voters and candidates alike so that our elected officials address the needs of our diverse communities and the issues voters care about.
DemocracyNYC is a nonpartisan initiative of the City of New York focused on increasing voter participation and civic engagement in NYC. Part of that mission is to encourage every eligible New Yorker to make their voice heard at the ballot box. DemocracyNYC also works to address and eliminate historic barriers to voting through public education, outreach, and policy reform efforts. Currently we are focusing on encouraging voters to participate in special and local elections by educating New Yorkers on Ranked Choice Voting and pushing for long term reform through legislation.
