Have you heard? The New York City mayoral primary is here, and this year, it’s more confusing than ever. For the first time, the election will be determined by ranked-choice voting, with everyone able to list up to five candidates. In case you haven’t quite made up your mind, here’s a Vulture-centric voting guide. Just as we did five years ago, we’ve taken a peek inside the minds of television’s most famous New Yorkers to see who they’re ranking No. 1. As always, there are only two rules for inclusion: They must conceivably be alive in 2021, and they have to live in New York City. (Which means that despite how much I’d love to guess how everyone from The Sopranos is voting, Paulie Walnuts & Co. are out.)
