Primary Day Open Thread
— Alaina (@alainaraftis) September 13, 2016
It’s a big day at the ballot box, with competitive races for State Senate and Assembly seats happening across the boroughs.
As Streetsblog readers know, state lawmakers wield tremendous influence over transit, traffic, and street safety. Several candidates have pledged to support toll reform and automated traffic enforcement — to name just two issues that will have a lasting impact on how safely and efficiently New Yorkers get around.
Since Democrats dominate most districts, many of today’s primary winners will have no opposition in November, and will go on to represent NYC in Albany.
Polls are open until 9 p.m. Check this WNYC page to see who’s on your ballot, and tell us about your voting experience in the comments.
