Ready, Set, Vote!
Tuesday, September 24, 2019 at 7 pm
DESCRIPTION

In 1920 women "got" the right to vote.
In 2019, New York State enacted its first voting reforms in a century.

New Yorkers will now have more time to vote, an easier time voting, and modern voter registration systems. These election reforms are significant, but in a state that's notorious for low voter turnout and poor access to the ballot box, there is still so much work to be done!

YOUR VOTE IS YOUR VOICE!

Join the Conversation. Learn about the new initiatives so you can spread the word. Discuss what can be done to expand voter access, right here in New York State and beyond. Your participation in the policy process matters.


Panel (in formation):
Meena Bose,

Kalikow School of Government, Public Policy and International Affairs, and Director of the Kalikow Center for the Study of the American Presidency.

This program is co-presented with the League of Women Voters of Port Washington - Manhasset. The League hosts hundreds of candidate debates and forums across the country each year and provides straightforward information about candidates and ballot issues. Through print and online resources, including VOTE411.org, we equip voters with essential information about the election process in each state, including polling place hours and locations, ballot information, early or absentee voting rules, voter registration deadlines, ID requirements and more.

Free admission to all Conversations from Main Street programs is made possible by underwriting from The Angela & Scott Jaggar Foundation
