This is the second reminder that the last day to register for the November 7 General Election is Friday, October 13. Don’t procrastinate and miss your chance to have your say in how your country, state, and local municipality are run!

“An individual who decides not to vote gives away his or her right to determine the quality of life he or she will live.” Jody Ann Graham, student, Baruch College

On Tuesday, October 10, look for voter registration forms and information at the SGA table in the campus center or pick up voter registration materials at the Center for Student Leadership and Involvement in 319 Egbert Hall or the Vice President or Student Affairs and Campus Life Office in 390 Egbert Hall.

To be eligible to register you must:
• Be a US Citizen
• Be 18 years old by the date of the election in which you want to vote
• Not claim the right to vote elsewhere
• Provide identification when you register. Identification means a verifiable New York State Driver’s license number. ONLY IF you do not have a NYS Driver’s license, then you can provide the last four digits of your social security number, as requested on the registration form. If you register by mail, you must provide a copy of ID; otherwise you will be asked for your ID when you vote.

Register in Ithaca, register at Home – it doesn’t matter. But make sure your vote counts!
