The NYC Campaign Finance Board (CFB) announced on Thursday, June 2 that it has released the Official New York City Voter Guide for some of the June 2022 primary elections scheduled for Thursday, June 28. The guide is available online at NYCVotes.org and allows voters to look up candidates on their ballot.

The guide provides profile information for candidates on the ballot for the following elected offices:

  • Deputy Governor

They added that in a similar way no candidate profiles are available for elected offices without competitive primaries.

They can add candidate profiles to the tool and then email or print their candidate selection to take to the survey page. The voter guide is available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Korean and Bengali, according to board officials, who also said the guide meets accessibility standards for users with disabilities.
