Hey Cornellians—There’s a day of major civic importance coming up and the library wants to be sure you don’t miss it. We’re talking, of course, about mid-term election day, which this year is on Tuesday, November 8.
A new voting info kiosk on Mann Library’s first floor is helping to connect students and other visitors with some essential tools for helping to make sure their vote gets counted. But for those who’d prefer direct links via this page, here are some of the essentials:
Visit vote.org for:
- finding early voting locations for your voting precinct
- checking your registration
- getting info on voting by mail in your state (requirements, deadlines, etc. )
- locating your polling place and finding their hours
- locating a ballot dropbox for your precinct
- seeing what’s on your ballot
Visit andrewgoodman.org/myvoteeverywhere/cornell-university/ for great info on voting procedures, polling place locations, candidate and issues up for the vote, and other essentials in Tompkins County or your home state. This site is designed specifically with students in mind!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org, the campus group Cornell Votes, for any (and we do mean any) questions you might have about voting. Find yourself wanting to get involved in the non-partisan campus effort to help every Cornellian exercise their voting rights? Reach out and get involved!
Use mailboxlocate.com to find a post office or mailbox near you (for mailing ballots).
