Yes, it's true. We do indeed have elections every 5 minutes in New York. Next up is just a week and a half away. We have a Primary Election on Tuesday, June 25, 2019!
Most people will have judges to vote on, some will have county committee elections, and if you're a Democrat in Queens you have an exciting District Attorney primary. You can preview your ballot (and find your polling site) here. We also have lots of links and resources on Theater in Asylum's voter guide here. Polls will be open from 6am to 9pm. If you will be out of town, you can request an absentee ballot here, just do it before Tuesday 6/18 via mail or Monday 6/24 in person.
Not sure how to research your candidates?
Our voter guide has lots of helpful links here.
We also have good luck getting the names of the candidates and then googling their last names with your borough. Trying to google the race itself without the names makes it way more difficult to find stuff.
The debates are starting!
It'll be like the Kennedy / Nixon debate but with 10x the number of candidates. There are so many, it's split across two nights (Wednesday 6/26 and Thursday 6/27). Theater in Asylum is hosting watch parties at The Gray Mare. Join us for what is sure to be a wild couple nights (remember Jim Webb?).
Throw us a five?
Between now and the New York primary in Spring 2020, we're planning to host dozens of watch parties, political analysis meetings, and scripting sessions. We're putting together cabarets and, eventually, a full-length show about the debates. If you're able to throw us a five (or more!) we would be so appreciative. Also, for a $5 donation per month, you can be a delegate!
Thank you and happy voting!!
