The Queens County Young Democrats will be hosting a straw poll to let members cast their vote for their preferred candidates for mayor, comptroller, public advocate, and borough president in this year's primary election.

Chapters of the New York State Young Democrats don't make formal endorsements, but the straw poll is an opportunity for members to voice their opinions and for candidates to gauge their support among the group.

The event is public, but the vote is only open to dues-paying members of the Queens County Young Democrats. The $20 annual membership fee can be paid at the door.
