It's the main day in New York, where Cynthia Nixon and Andrew Cuomo will meet face to face in the race for governor of the state.
The former Sex And The City star received support in the vote of his ex-star Jessica Parker.
SJP posted a photo on Instagram of his decal & # 39; I Voted & # 39; and wrote: & # 39; One of the best feelings in the world. Very proud to see the name of my dear friend Cynthia Nixon on the ballot. The polls open here in the great state of New York until 9p. X, SJ. & # 39;

& # 39; Best feeling & # 39 ;: SJY posted a photo of his sticker & # 39; I voted & # 39; on his Instagram and wrote: & # 39; Very proud to see the name of my dear friend Cynthia Nixon on the ballot & # 39;
Sex And The City ran on HBO for six seasons from 1998 to 2004 and turned Nixon, who played Miranda, into a household name.
The actress's decision to challenge the current president Cuomo marks her first candidacy for a political office, and the polls have her behind the current governor by at least 30 points.
Nixon, 52, is married to Christine Marinoni, with whom he shares a son, born in Marinoni in 2011.
She also has two children from her old relationship with Danny Mozes and in June, she revealed that her oldest son is a transsexual.

However, the Trainwreck star changed his mind again when he posted on Instagram on Thursday that he ended up casting his vote for Nixon.
"We voted and we voted for @cynthiaenixon, he could not help it," he explained.
