New Yorkers will head to the polls once again to vote on the general election next month. Here’s what you need to know if you’re voting in Queens.

Election Day is on Tuesday, Nov. 2, with polls open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Early voting will take place from Saturday, Oct. 23, to Sunday, Oct. 31.

The deadline to request an absentee ballot online or by mail from the city’s Board of Elections was on Oct. 18, but New Yorkers can request an absentee ballot in person up until Nov. 1. Absentee ballot holders must mail in their ballots by Nov. 2, which is also the last day to have the absentee ballot postmarked.

While the competitive primary election in June used ranked-choice voting (RCV) for the first time, the general election will not. Voters will choose one candidate for each seat on their ballot.

Here’s a refresher on who is running for what in Queens.
