    • In our district, the Democratic primary often determines the outcome of the general election due to our overwhelmingly blue constituency. New York operates under a closed primary system, meaning only registered Democrats can participate in Democratic primaries. If you’re registered as an Independent or with a third party, you won’t have a say in who represents you. Don’t miss your chance to be part of the decision-making process—register as a Democrat to ensure your voice is heard in shaping Harlem’s future.
