Get Out the Vote!
Dear WBASNY WNY Members:
As many of you assist your children in the annual August return to college, getting those dorm room/apartment linens and pots and pans, not to mention extra cell phone chargers, we ask that you add one more thing to the list.
Get your sons, daughters, nieces, nephews and grandchildren registered to vote!
WNY and WBASNY have taken on a challenge! Each chapter has committed to registering new voters for this election. Voting in our democracy gives power to the people, and we are excited to encourage young voters to register and vote this November!!
It’s easy! Click on the first link below to download the form to register to vote. Deadline is October 14!
For those in college and not at home on Election Day (Nov. 8) but already registered, click on the second link below to get an Absentee Ballot Application. Once they receive the ballot, they can fill it in and mail it by the deadline. That’s it!
For those of you who will be traveling on Election Day, we encourage you to request an Absentee Ballot.
Please also think of parents and grandparents who may need to register again due to a move in or out of state, and who may also need an Absentee Ballot due to illness or disability. We urge you to assist them in exercising their right to vote.
Below are two links: a NYS Voter Registration Form and a NYS Absentee Ballot Application.
The deadline for Voter Registration forms is October 14th.
The deadline for Absentee Ballot is November 1st which means the application for an absentee ballot should probably be sent no later than October 1st.
Our goal is to support as many people as possible in registering to vote, and to have them vote on November 8th! It’s exciting, a precious right in our democracy, and we expect unprecedented turnout this year!
Thank you WNY members for all that you do! And let’s go vote!!!
