Election Day, November 8, 2022 is about 6 weeks away, with Early Voting less than 5. Most everyone is registered to vote, but people have until October 14th to register. Now is the time to make sure you have you done everything you could to be knowledgeable, ready to vote yourself and get out the vote.

  • Do you know anyone who is just turning 18 or has recently moved and needs to register? Now is the time!
  • Do you know how and when to apply for an absentee ballot? Now is the time!
  • Have you gone to VOTE411 (the LWV On line Voter Guide) and checked out the candidates on your ballot? Have you told your friends about VOTE411? Now is the time!
  • Do you know when the league is holding candidate events for your election districts and made plans to attend?  Now is the time!
  • Have you signed up for LWVNY texting service? If not text VOTENY to 47474 to get alerts and reminders. Now is the time!
  • Have you made your plan for voting and asked friends or family to come with you? Now is the time!
  • Do you have any ideas or strategies to Get Out The Vote and shared them? Now is the time!
