The New York City Civic Engagement Program has partnered with HeadCount to register voters in Barnard College’s surrounding neighborhoods on Monday, Septmber 24th, for National Voter Registration Day. Volunteers will meet at 5pm on Barnard’s campus to attend a mandatory 30-minute training session, and then will divide into small teams to canvass the Morningside Heights and West Harlem areas to register voters. All groups will meet back on campus at approximately 8pm for a quick debrief. No prior voter registration or canvassing experience is necessary (we will train you).
All Barnard and Columbia students, staff, and faculty members are welcome! Please sign up via this Google form if you are interested in volunteering: http://tinyurl.com/barnardvoter.
