The election board will also be open to the public the Saturday before the election, March 2, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Monday, March 4 is the last day to cast an absentee ballot in person and Wednesday, February 27 is the last day the Election Board will accept absentee ballots by mail.
Voters must select a party ballot and will be voting for the party's nominees for Mayor and Comptroller.
Registered voters should start to receive their Notice of Election cards in the mail around February 18 and are encouraged to review their card closely as some polling places may have changed.
