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?

Do we have a resource for who to vote for tomorrow for the best Progressive choices?

I'm kind of alarmed that we have literally nothing pinned, there are a lot of names on these ballots and no way to know who these people are without looking them up individually, assuming there is any information at all.

We absolutely need a pinned thread ASAP for who to vote for, especially for those voting by name. Come on mods, this sub is one of our best resources and you aren't providing the information needed, the top of this sub should be nothing but pinned threads with who are our progressive options.
