WCC invites you to our next Table Talk Online: “Final Call”
Get Out the Vote (GOTV) Phone Bank Event!
The event will take place on Monday, November 2nd from 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM in partnership with the New York Immigration Coalition and will feature a surprise guest speaker.
The discussion will be moderated by WCC lifetime member (Grace) Angela Henry, whose background in education, empowerment, and activism will encourage women to consider the wide range of ways they can get involved in their communities during and after the election.

This will be a special edition of Table Talk, our ongoing roundtable series on civic engagement, where attendees will be trained by the New York Immigration Coalition to make phone calls to voters and encourage them to vote. The event will open with a conversation about the importance of voting and what is at stake in this election. The goal is to mobilize every last eligible New Yorker to cast a vote by November 3rd.

This event is free, but please register here.

Upcoming Voting Deadlines: 

ABSENTEE BALLOTS AND VOTING BY MAIL:

VOTE EARLY! HERE’S HOW: 

— Polling Site Locations: Find your poll site here
*Note, some early voting poll sites are different from Election Day poll sites.

— When Can I Vote Early?: Early voting starts on October 24th and ends on November 1st: Here are the days and hours.

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS:

  • Cast Your Ballot: Do not leave the poll site without casting a ballot!

    • If poll workers cannot locate your registration, always ask poll workers to double check the poll book for your name.

    • If your name still cannot be located, you are entitled to vote by provisional ballot, which can be checked against the statewide registry to confirm your registration.

  • Know what to expect at the poll site if you are voting in person. 

  • Sample Ballot: View a sample ballot beforehand to make sure you are voting for the candidates and policies who best represent you and your community.

  • Extra Ballots: If you make a mistake on your ballot while voting in person, you can request up to three ballots from a poll worker.

  • Pandemic Precautions: The New York Board of Elections is working to ensure that all polling sites will be as clean and safe as possible, and the CDC has issued guidelines for election polling locations. Be sure to wear your mask and wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after touching surfaces to stay healthy when voting.

WHAT DO I DO IF SOMEONE TRIES TO SUPPRESS VOTES? 

Voter Suppression:
Know what qualifies as voter suppression or intimidation (Example: displaying false or misleading signs about voting at poll sites, voter fraud, or criminal penalties for voting.)

Reporting Voter Suppression:
If you witness or experience voter intimidation at the polls, you can call The Election Protection Hotline at 1-866-OUR-VOTE (1-888-VE-Y-VOTA en Español). Be sure to alert local and state officials, including poll workers, your county clerk, elections commissioner, elections supervisor, or your state Board of Elections.
