Get Out the Vote Initiative
Onondaga Votes! is a non-partisan coalition comprised of volunteers from a variety of organizations including the League of Women Voters, which received a grant from the Gifford Foundation to increase voter participation. The first ever voter registration drive at the Onondaga County Justice Center was organized in 2016 by the Central New York Women's Bar Association, which is participating again in this year's voter registration drive. People and organizations interested in volunteering for upcoming voter registration and get out the vote events may contact the League of Women Voters of the Syracuse Metropolitan Area at 315-396-8225.
