New York’s primary is officially here and it’s incredibly important you vote if you’re a resident. But you might have questions like: where do I vote? Am I eligible? HollywoodLife.com can answer all of those questions and more. It’s incredibly important that you vote because for the first time since 1988 has the Big Apple held primaries for both the Republican and Democratic presidential candidates, plus there are a lot of delegates at stake … 291 Democratic and 71 Republican to be exact.
The race comes at a time where there’s a lot of momentum for both candidates and there’s not a clear front-runner on the Republican side. Hillary is leading ahead of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump is ahead of Ted Cruz but there’s a lot at stake. Especially since Hillary and Bernie are both from NYC — they both consider this state their hometown. Bernie grew up in Brooklyn and Hillary lives in Chappaqua, NY. But first, how do you know if you are eligible to vote? You must have registered by March 25 and if you aren’t sure, you can click here. But where can you vote?
