Tuesday is National Voter Registration Day and local organizations are making resources available to help the public get registered. Any eligible voters who are not currently registered or need to change their registration can do so at the following locations.
- Resource Center for Independent Living (RCIL): 131 Genesee St., Utica or 401 E. German St., Herkimer
- YWCA: 7 Rutger Park, Utica
- Dunham Public Library: 76 Main St., Whitesboro
- New York Mills Public Library: 399 Maint St., New York Mills
RCIL says they are available to help voters get registered any time throughout the year.
“Every year thousands of individuals miss the opportunity to vote because they didn’t register, they didn’t update their registration form, or they didn’t know how to register or how to vote; so we are here today to help make sure people know how to register, help them get registered and let them know where their polling places are and that they are accessible,” said Georgianna Sanges, an RCIL employee.
This year, more than 4,000 grassroots organizations will help more than 250,000 eligible voters update their registration or register for the first time.
