In 2023, elections focus on leadership at the local level. From mayors to county executives and legislators, many seats are up for grabs.
While these races typically see lower turnout than a presidential year, local races have a big impact on voters. The elected offices up for grabs control local policies and projects, property taxes and other big decisions that impact your everyday life.
The 2023 Voter Guide has information on registering to vote, absentee ballots and early voting in New York. The Voter Guide can also be found on the Spectrum News app.
Capital Tonight is Spectrum News' nightly political show covering New York state politics. The half hour-long show, hosted by Susan Arbetter, airs weeknights at 7 p.m.
