If you’re registered to vote but you’re unsure about where you need to go, you can click here to look up your voter registration. Once you enter your name, date of birth, county and zip code, it will tell you whether your registration is active or not, and it will provide you with the location of where you need to go to vote.

Aside from the local village, town, city and county races, there will also be three proposals on the back of every ballot. The most talked about proposal is whether or not New York should hold a Constitutional Convention, which gives elected delegates the opportunity to propose changes to the New York State Constitution.

For more information regarding the Constitutional Convention – how it works, how much it costs and more – click here.

According to ballotpedia.org, the three proposals on every ballot in New York today include:

1. Shall there be a convention to revise the Constitution and amend the same?

2. The proposed amendment to section 7 of Article 2 of the State Constitution would allow a court to reduce or revoke the public pension of a public officer who is convicted of a felony that has a direct and actual relationship to the performance of the public officer’s existing duties. Shall the proposed amendment be approved?

3. The proposed amendment will create a land account with up to 250 acres of forest preserve land eligible for use by towns, villages, and counties that have no viable alternative to using forest preserve land to address specific public health and safety concerns; as a substitute for the land removed from the forest preserve, another 250 acres of land, will be added to the forest preserve, subject to legislative approval. The proposed amendment also will allow bicycle trails and certain public utility lines to be located within the width of specified highways that cross the forest preserve while minimizing removal of trees and vegetation. Shall the proposed amendment be approved?

To clear up a common misconception, a blank ballot for any of these three proposals does not count as a "yes" vote. The only way your ballot will count as a "yes" vote is if you fill in that bubble on your ballot.
