A huge part of what we’re doing this year at the Civic Engagement Office deals with educating people on how the voting process works from deadlines, to the correct forms to fill out, to where they will be voting on election day. We’ve found a number of websites that taught us a lot about the process and we’re hoping they can help you, too. One website in particular that we liked was www.866outvote.org. They have created a helpful smartphone application that will allow you to:
• Verify your registration;
• Register to vote;
• Look up your polling place;
• Review key voting rules and regulations in New York; and
• See what type of machine you’ll be voting on.
You can find the application at the following link: http://www.866ourvote.org/pages/election-protection-smartphone-app
