Congressional races that will be on your ballot

While the presidential race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton has been the focus in this election cycle, there are a number of other races that will appear on your ballot on Nov. 8.

In New York, Sen. Chuck Schumer is up for reelection, as well as a number of representatives in the House. There are 13 congressional districts that represent parts of New York City. (You can check what district you live in here.)

In 11 districts, the House of Representatives incumbents are running for reelection, but in District 3 and 13, seats will definitely be filled with new representatives. Congressman Steve Israel in District 3 and Congressman Charles Rangel in District 13 are finishing their last terms as representatives this year.

There are also state senate, state assembly and local court elections, but the districts are not the same as the congressional districts. Check here to see what state-level races will be on your ballot.
