QUEENS COUNTY SECTION
"Fortified By The Past...Focused On The Future"
The Queens County Section is registered as a National Voter Registration Day partner. Our members provide vital information regarding voter registration and assist with the registration process during voter registration drives. The voter education committee has established an ongoing partnership with York College and Queens College to register students who are newly eligible to vote and also attends voter education events at high schools to educate students about the importance of voting. Section members are actively involved in providing community education about the 2020 Census and have participated in Census phone banking events to increase the number of Southeast Queens residents who complete the Census form.
