The primaries are upon us, and if you’re a registered democrat or republican, it’s time to choose the party’s official candidates for office. Depending on where in the neighborhood you live (and what party you’re a member of), the ballots will include candidates for mayor, city council, public advocate, city comptroller, and district attorney. Here’s a breakdown of the polling sites in our area:
P.S. 10: 511 7 Avenue, between Prospect Avenue and 17th Street (Bring some pocket money, because the school will have a bake sale set up in the lobby for those weary voters waiting in line.)
P.S. 172: 825 4th Avenue, between 29th and 30th Street
M.S. 88 Peter Peter Rouget: 544 7th Avenue, between 18th and 19th Street
