REDISTRICTING IN TOMPKINS COUNTY – MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD – January 25, 5:30 pm

The League of Women Votes of Tompkins County (LWVTC) together with LWV of Cortland County worked intensively during the State redistricting process to ensure the voices of all members of our two counties were heard by the NYSIRC. LWVTC is now working to ensure that the voices of everyone in Tompkins County are heard by the Tompkins County Independent Redistricting Commission.  However, voices can only be heard if they are raised.  Click here for information on upcoming public hearings.


VOTE411

VOTE411 is a national, non-partisan election resource that provides a “one-stop shop” for all the information you need to register and cast your ballot, including when, where, and how to vote. 

In addition to many local government positions being up for election or re-election in Tompkins County, there will also be important state proposals on the ballot related to voting rights and the environment.

Launched as a community service in 2006 by the League of Women Voters, VOTE411 has helped people participate in elections, whether they are first-time voters or seasoned veterans at the ballot box. Voters can simply enter their home address to learn which elections are being held within their specific district and they can browse by state to explore other election resources.
