Welcome to the new and improved online voting system for The Call, the first TV news show where users program the newscast.

After nine years of providing a rundown tool where users ranked the day's top stories from top to bottom, we're introducing a new approach.  Now when you read or watch one of our top news stories online, just look for the "You Make The Call" box on the left side of the page, and click the button to vote for it as the most important story of the day.

The current rank of all the top stories can be seen on this page and throughout the site in our new ranking tool, which you can also use to cast your vote.  And anytime you vote, you're also given the opportunity to share your vote on social media.  (If the ranking tool is empty, it's because we're waiting to add new stories each weekday morning.)

As usual, we tally all the votes and present the top stories live on The Call, each weeknight at 9:00 on NY1.
