Why does voting for president matter if you also vote for delegates?

I'm from New York, so I see two areas on my ballot. The candidate vote, and the delegate vote. AFAIK, the delegates all get together to pick the president, so you should vote for the 6 delegates that match the candidate you want to be president.

So, if that's the case, what am I voting for when I vote for president? Is that section of the ballot just there so that people can say "XXX won YY% of the vote"? Does that section of the ballot actually determine anything?

Bernie Sanders on Twitter: “Liar in Chief: According to a new report, Trump has made 19,127 false or misleading claims since taking office. A new poll finds only 35% of Americans believe he is honest. In a democracy we can have different views, but not a president who is a pathological liar.”

Bernie for Shadow President

I know this might sound weird, but you see the whole President in Exile after a country was overthrown. Perhaps Bernie should set up his own Shadow Presidency and propose his agenda in contrast to whoever is in power. Disclaimer: I'm not an American, but I do feel that the US has lost it's way for the moment.
