With Midterm elections coming up in November, it’s important to get registered before October 10th so you can vote! Luckily, New York State offers online voter registration. Click here to get started. We also have paper ballots here at the library. Fun fact: when registering on paper, you only need the last four digits of your Social Security number or your DMV ID number. (Compared to online where you need both.)
If you want to see how your congressperson has voted in the last few years, make sure to check out GovTrack, a website detailing every issue that reaches congress and how your representatives vote on them. Make sure you stay educated!
Only 36.6% of eligible Americans voted in the 2014 midterm elections. Voting is a fundamental right. Exercise it!
