LWV Voter Participation Project – Saturday, September 15
August 31st 2012 · 0 Comments
New York State has often been recognized as one of the most progressive states in the country. However, one area in which New York has not been a leader is election reform.
Over the last three federal elections, New York had the 47th lowest voter participation rate of the 50 states and Washington, D.C. There are many possible opportunities to increase rates of voter participation in NYS through common sense solutions that have been implemented in other states beginning in the 1980s. This is your opportunity to help us determine more efficient and effective ways of engaging voters. The public is cordially invited to attend this presentation on Saturday, September 15th, at the Dorothy Smith Advocacy Center of RCIL, located at 1607 Genesee Street, Utica (corner Scott and Genesee Sts.). Registration is at 9:30 a.m., breakfast at 10:00 a.m., with the presentation following just after breakfast. Cost is $12.00 per member, $15.00 non-members. Reservations are required by TUESDAY, September 11th and can be made by calling (315) 733-6244 and leaving your name, number of people attending, contact number and if special accommodations such as sign language interpretation are needed, or by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org. [Parking is available adjacent to the building, and the center is fully accessible.] -END-
