New Yorkers' grand, central guide to elections, politics & government


THANK YOU FOR VISITING DECIDE NYC, OUR TEAM IS MOVING TO GOTHAM GAZETTE

During 2013, Decide NYC served as New Yorkers' grand, central guide to city elections, politics, and government - with a focus on the 2013 city election cycle. Our mission is to provide clear, comprehensive, helpful resources to add to the civic discourse and further engage New Yorkers with politics and policy. Our Founder, Ben Max, and other members of our team are doing similar work at GOTHAM GAZETTE as of mid-March, 2014 - please use Decide NYC as an archive of the 2013 elections and visit us at GothamGazette.com for new, important, and engaging content!

We’ve moved to Gotham Gazette!

 

Please utilize the resources that remain here from our coverage of the 2013 New York City election cycle and visit us at GothamGazette.com for ongoing New York politics and policy news and information, including coverage of the 2014 NYS elections.
