Early voting is over and those who didn't vote already can cast their ballots Tuesday on Election Day.
There are five proposals that are on the ballot all across New York state this year.
• Proposal 1 involves redistricting of legislative and congressional district lines. It would count any resident of a district as a voter even if they are not a U.S. citizen.
• Proposal 2 could impact where and when new developments related to clean air and clean water take place.
• Proposal 3 would allow voters to register less than 10 days before an election.
• Proposal 4 would eliminate the requirement that a voter provide a reason for voting by absentee ballot.
• Proposal 5 would increase the New York City Civil Court's jurisdiction by allowing it to hear and decide claims for up to $50,000 instead of the current limit of $25,000. Some believe this could alleviate the caseload of the state Supreme Court.
Some of the local races that Long Islanders have a close eye on are Nassau County district attorney, Suffolk County district attorney and Nassau County executive.
Polling sites in Nassau and Suffolk open at 6 a.m.
