6:00pm – 7:15pm ET
Village Preservation has invited the League of Women Voters of the City of New York to speak about the general election and how recent changes to election law have impacted our neighborhoods. Election Day on November 8th will offer new challenges and opportunities for New York City voters, such as new ballot initiatives that you will be asked to weigh in on. There have been changes to polling sites, absentee ballot and early voting rules – do you have all the information you need? The 2022 election cycle was already rocked by unprecedented upheaval resulting from last-minute court-ordered redistricting of state legislative and congressional district lines.
You don’t have to navigate this alone! We’re here to help. You’ll hear from the non–partisan experts that have long been trusted in our neighborhoods and beyond (note: both the League of Women Voters and Village Preservation are 501[c]3 organizations and therefore cannot offer endorsements or recommendations on candidates or who to vote for).
You’ll also learn about the great resources offered by the League of Women Voters of the City of New York, including: telephone information services to answer questions about voting in NYC; educational publications, including What Makes New York City Run?, a citizen’s guide to New York City government, and They Represent You, an annually updated directory of city, state and federal legislators who represent New York residents. This program will prepare you to create your own voting plan for this General Election and inspire you to help get out the vote for this critical election.
The League of Women Voters of the City of New York is a non-partisan organization whose purpose is to promote informed and active citizen participation in government. Their mission is to expand our outreach and increase all New Yorkers’ participation in local communities and government through civics education, the “vote”, and issue advocacy. Founded in 1919, the League of Women Voters of the City of New York was an offshoot of the Women’s Suffrage movement. Membership is open to all people who support their causes. The League is supported by membership dues and contributions from public-spirited individuals, businesses and organizations.
