CUNY Opens 14 Campuses to Serve New Yorkers as Early Voting and Election Day Polling Sites
The City University of New York will again welcome New Yorkers onto campuses to exercise their right to vote in the city’s general election. Ten colleges will host polling sites for early voting, from Oct. 28 through Nov. 5; and six campuses will serve as voting locations on Election Day, Nov. 7.
“We embrace CUNY’s responsibility to foster civic engagement, a role that is consistent with our University’s longstanding commitment to helping shape New York’s future leaders,” said CUNY Chancellor Félix V. Matos Rodríguez. “Our colleges are host to more than just classes for students, and we hope that New Yorkers are reminded of the many resources available to their communities on our campuses as they stop by to help decide who will lead our city in 2024.”
In addition to hosting poll sites, the University has been promoting student voter registration and participation through its non-partisan CUNY Votes initiative.
