GOTV/Political Action 2016

On April 19th, along with the Presidential Primary, Special Elections will take place for the current open seats in both the NYS Assembly & Senate. The UFA will be requesting off-duty members to turnout and support, longtime friend of Firefighters, Chris McGrath who is running on the Republican line in the 9th New York State Senate district. Turnout in the special elections will be critical.

We are also looking for volunteers to help out with the campaign for phone banking, literature drops and poll watching on Election Day.

If you are able to help out, please contact Matt DesJardin at MDesjardin@ufanyc.org or 212-545-6967. The campaign headquarters is located at 721 Franklin Ave, Franklin Square, NY 11010.

Note: To be a Poll Watcher, you must be a Nassau council resident.


Register to Vote

The easiest way to register to vote is online through the DMV's Web site HERE. MyDMV requires you to create an online account, completely removing any paper from the process. Anyone with a NYS driver's license is eligible to register online.

Another simple tool to register to vote is through the Board of Elections website, (for NYC Residents) HERE or (outside of NYC) HERE. Just complete the form, print, and put it in the mail. If you have any questions, please reach out to your delegate.

The first step in getting involved in the political process is registering to vote.
