Special Election Day!

It will be interesting to see how many people get to the polls today to vote for their next Bronx Borough President. By most accounts, the outcome has already been determined. 

It would take a miracle for underdog Republican candidate and former "Sopranos" actor Anthony Ribustello to upset Democratic Assemblyman Ruben Diaz Jr. who was working with a nearly $100 to $1 fundraising advantage, backing from all the major Democratic clubs and parties and the fact that the Bronx is overwhelming Democratic (though the BP election is nonpartisan). 

Despite his obvious and impressive advantages, Diaz has done an extensive ad campaign to get folks out to the polls so he can head into office (and the upcoming regularly scheduled general election later this fall) with a strong show of support.

Polls opened at 6 a.m. and will remain open until 9 p.m. To find out where you can vote, call (866) VOTE-NYC. 

Still haven't made up your mind:
