Food Bank For New York City Voter Registration Drive

When: November 5, 2013

We are encouraging you to take part in the upcoming November 5th New York City Municipal General Elections.  Who you choose to vote for is entirely up to you, but it is important that we all make the choice to participate by learning about the issues and the candidates, registering to vote and helping others do the same.

The Food Bank for New York City is excited to announce that our network hosted over 30 Voter Registration Drives this summer. This large number of drives reflects the power and connectedness of the anti-hunger community that will only be furthered come election day.

2013 is a huge election year for New York City. In addition to voting for a new Mayor of New York City, Public Advocate, District Attorney, and City Comptroller, dozens of City Council seats are up for election, as well as all five Borough Presidents.

As we have seen with the recent defeat of the House Farm Bill, the anti-hunger community has a powerful voice in advocating on behalf of those in need. With a network that serves over 1.4 million New Yorkers, we are committed to ensuring that our clients are informed on their right to vote, and that the communal voice of our community continues to be heard.

Make sure you are registered to vote and you know where to vote, many polling sites have changed due to redistricting, please check yours using the Polling Places website. Polling places are open from 6:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. 

We will see you at the polls. Don’t forget to ask for your “I Voted” sticker at your local poll site.
