Reminder Voting Happens On November 7th: What You Need to Know

It’s that time of the year again. No, not the holidays (but we’re just as excited as you). We’re talking about voting season.

Although presidential elections won’t be held for another three years, there are still elections that directly impact your community and city. As a citizen, it is part of our civic duty to engage in voting and have a voice in how our cities, states, and country are governed. Oftentimes, local elections can make the biggest impact–so make sure you cast your ballot this year!

What registered voters need to know

If you are registered to vote, there are a few things you need to know.

  • Your designated poll site: Where you are able to vote is determined by where you live. You can only vote at your designated polling site–so it’s important you know where it is. Find your polling site here
  • Did you register, but aren’t sure? You can check if you’re registered here.
  • Polling site accessibility: 99% of all polling sites are barrier free. If your site in inaccessible, please contact your local Borough office.
  • If you need assistance: If you are unable to read, see the names printed on the ballot, and do not speak English and need an interpreter, polling stations have individuals who can help you. (Your union representative or employer may not assist you.)

When are polls open?

Polls are open on election day, November 7, 2017, from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Not registered to vote?

The deadline to register to vote is Oct. 13, which has already passed. Even though the deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 7 general election this year has passed, you can still register to vote for next year.

You can begin and learn about registering to vote here.

For more information regarding voting, visit the website here.

If you still have questions and would like more information, you can attend our Project Connect workshop Oct. 26, where we will be answering questions and helping folks to register and enroll for health insurance and SNAP. You can RSVP for the event here
