About NYC Votes

The CFB’s NYC Votes campaign promotes civic engagement through community outreach, voter registration and engagement programs, and educational resources.

NYC Votes is the voter outreach and engagement campaign of the Campaign Finance Board, conducted under the guidance of its Voter Assistance Advisory Committee (VAAC).

Under the NYC Votes banner, the CFB registers citizens to vote, showcases opportunities to get involved in civic life, and provides New Yorkers with the information they need to engage meaningfully in the electoral process.

NYC Votes reaches New Yorkers in person, through broadcast media, in the mail, online, and on social media. Its activities include high-profile programs such as National Voter Registration Day, the city’s official nonpartisan Voter Guide, Student Voter Registration Day, the Youth Poet Laureate program, “I Voted” stickers for city poll sites, NYC Votes Advocacy Day at the State Legislature in Albany, and the citywide Debate Program.

With the help of community partners and city agencies, the CFB brings voter registration events and civic engagement programs to all five boroughs, with a particular focus on historically disenfranchised communities, as mandated in the City Charter.
