NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Voter Services volunteers, under the leadership of Joan Alexander and Amy Weiser, have been busy registering voters in April and May at Iona Prep, Iona College, The College of New Rochelle, and Monroe College. They’ve also been at the New Rochelle Public Library’s “Big Book Sale” on the first Saturday of each month, and at Hope Community Services Food Pantry and Soup Kitchen. League volunteers were also at the Re-Entry Resource Fair on April 22 at Grace Baptist Church to register people who had been released from incarceration and were eligible to vote.
Joan Alexander notes that future plans include being at The Grand Market on the first Saturday of each month until November, the New Rochelle Street Fair, Hope Community Services Food Pantry and Soup Kitchen, and the local colleges. The League also hands out special information booklets for new voters in English and Spanish, and for those who are homeless.
