EAST FLATBUSH — Brooklynites must register by Friday, April 19, to cast a ballot in the upcoming special election.
Residents in Flatbush, East Flatbush, Flatlands, Midwood and Canarsie will choose from several candidates running in the 45th council district. Bklyner detailed their platforms and accomplishments last month in this article.

The winner of the special election in the 45 council district will remain in office for the remainder of 2019.
