In a bid to boost turnout, AAFE has mobilized 30 volunteers to phone bank more than 3,000 voters in Manhattan and Queens (including residents of AAFE’s affordable housing developments), to urge them to make it to the polling station on Election Day.
The event marks the climax in a series of events the organization had held to promote political participation. Earlier this year, AAFE staff and youth volunteers took part in a voter registration drive in Flushing, NY. The event was part of National Voter Registration Day, a nationwide campaign to create widespread awareness of voter registration opportunities.
Polls will be open from 6:00 AM to 9:00 PM. For assistance finding your poll site and to preview who is on the ballot, click here.
