Even if you don't live or have an internship in New York City, you can't miss the obvious: there's a primary election for Mayor, other important offices, and City Council members next Tuesday. What is much harder to find in the midst of confusing flyers and endless TV ads is clear, thorough, non-partisan information about each candidate and race that's also interesting and moves way beyond locating voter polling places. Fortunately, DecideNYC.com fills the bill. This unique site not only provides a detailed profile of every candidate, a Poll Tracker for all major races, and debate coverage and candidate interviews with their own staff reporters, but also an extensive list of media, community group, union, and political advocacy group endorsements for every candidate in every race. And if you just want to know what a Public Advocate or Borough President is really supposed to do, they cover that, too. So if you live or vote in one of the Boroughs, or you just want to know more about how this huge and complex city works, be sure to check out DecideNYC.com.
