Sunday is the last day of early voting for Bronx districts 11 and 15
Two city council seats in the Bronx up for grabs this week and Sunday is the final day of early voting before Election Day this Tuesday.
So far, voter turnout has been low.
The polling location at the Bronx High School of Science has only had about 90 people come in since last Saturday. In that time, only about 7,300 people across the two districts have voted.
The elections are happening in Districts 11 and 15.
In District 15, 10 candidates are trying to fill the city council seat that was held by Ritche Torres, who is now in Congress. The area covers Fordham, Mount Hope, Belmont, East Tremont, Allerton and Olinville.
In District 11, six people are trying to fill the seat left vacant by Andrew Cohen who accepted a judgeship. This district includes Kingsbridge, Riverdale, Norwood, Wakefield, and Woodlawn.
Now whoever wins these races will fill the position for the rest of this year but will have to fight for the seats again in June's primary for the next term. These elections are also some of the first in the city to use the ranked choice voting system.
One voter told News 12 it was important to head to the polls early because it is from within the districts that voters can create changes for the community.
For those who don't get a chance to vote early, they will have the opportunity on Election Day this Tuesday.
The polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
