Early voting begins as NYers weigh new mayor, constitutional amendments

New York Elections

NEW YORK — Early voting began on Saturday in an election that will decide the next mayor of New York City.

On the inaugural day of early voting, more than 15,000 New Yorkers hit the polls.

Early voting will run through Oct. 31.

Voters will also be asked to weigh in on five proposed constitutional amendments. Those include one to create a right to clean air and water and two that would make it easier to vote.

Early voting was first launched in the state in 2019.

More than 2.5 million New Yorkers voted early in last year’s presidential election.
