Keeping voters safe during the coronavirus pandemic has led to procedural changes. NYS AFL-CIO Chief of Staff Ryan Delgado explains what you need to know to make sure your vote counts.

Make Your Plan To Vote! In this year's Primary elections, not only will you choose which candidate to support,
but also how you exercise your right to vote. Here are your options.
