The City of Harlem will be conducting an election for Mayor and two Councilmembers on November 7, 2017.  This is a reminder that the two precincts, Harlem Middle School and Harlem Baptist Church, have now been combined into the one precinct, Harlem Branch Library.  The Board of Elections sent out letters and updated registration cards with this information.  In order to vote in the election, you must reside within the city limits of Harlem and be registered to vote in the city elections.  The precinct will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
