Young Voters Turning Out to Vote?
Need to find out if your registered to vote? Go to https://voterlookup.elections.state.ny.us/votersearch.aspx
As for my other 2 children both of them called last night knowing Dad stays up late working. My daughter called at 11:00 pm with the question "Dad, where do I vote tomorrow"?. She goes to SUNY Oswego and was making the trip back here to vote and then heading to Norwich where her boyfriend is registered to vote and then back to Oswego so I'm proud of the both her and Justin because it will take some effort with all the driving they will be doing to get out and vote but both are excited about it being their first time to be old enough to vote for the President. I did explain some of the part about absentee voting to her for the future elections...
At 11:30 pm the phone rings again with my youngest son asking "Dad, where do I vote tomorrow and how do I do it"? I told Chris where he votes and told him I will go with him when he is done with his classes at OCC. He also is excited about being able to vote for the first time in his life.
He was pretty sure that he registered to vote but had a little doubt that maybe he wasn't. One of the good things about technology and the internet is that you can actually go online and look to see if you are registered and where your voting station is. I already took my 78 year old mother to vote and while I was there voting myself checked to see if he was registered and indeed he was so I'll be heading back with him later to explain how it works.
If your not sure where you are suppose to vote or may be wondering if you are registered to vote I highly recommend you look it up at
This is for New York voters and all you have to do is type in your name, age, county, zip code and birth date and it will let you know if you are registered and what they have down for your polling station. Enough said and no matter your party or who you are voting for, just take the time and do it. Good Luck to all of us for a better 4 years ahead.
Happy Election Day All!!!
