In a year of deep political division, all of us who are registered voters will do something together on Tuesday.

Though thousands of Capital Region voters have taken advantage of early voting this year, Election Day remains when the many gears in the vote-processing system mesh, and when most people will fill out their ballots.

As a society, voting is how we make collective decisions — this year about who will make federal and state laws and policies. If you don’t vote, you’re not helping make those decisions.

Beyond the presidential election, there are congressional and state Senate and Assembly races being decided, along with a few local races or issues. For a voter, having an open mind is a good thing: In this section, we offer information on who and what is on the ballot, so that voters will be better informed. We also salute all voters today, including some of the local early voters shown on this page.
