Make sure you can vote
If you’re not yet registered to vote, change that. Learn more about registration deadlines and guidelines. Find information regarding your voter registration status and polling location. On election day, make a plan: identify your polling location, choose a convenient time for you to head to the polls, and then vote! Learn more about NYC’s new Ranked Choice Voting system here.
Get the guide to student voting
Students often face added barriers to voting simply due to a lack of understanding about how or where to register when they are not living at home. The Campus Vote Project provides an excellent state-by-state guide to help students get registered and answer questions any student may have about their voter eligibility.
We’re committed to increasing women’s representation.
We educate voters on the women’s rights credentials of candidates. We’ve made progress, but have a long ways to go. Women currently make up 26.7% of Congress. Thirty-four percent of women serving in Congress are women of color. Women make up 34.3% of our New York State legislature, putting New York 16th in the rankings of representation in state legislatures. Get the stats on the growing number of women holding elected office.
