SUNY Cortland’s Institute for Civic Engagement, New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG) and United University Professions are making sure students who are eligible and registered to vote locally have the opportunity on Election Day.

NYPIRG will offer a van shuttle to local polling places from Corey Union, then back to campus, between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5. Polls remain open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.

A database is accessible for voters to verify their registration and a sample ballot for Cortland County voters also is available online. Besides local elections, several amendments to New York’s State Constitution are on the ballot, including a proposal to legalize casino gambling.

Registered voters who live in the following residence halls vote at Parkside Ministries, located at 78 Homer Ave.: Clark, Fitzgerald and Randall halls.

Registered voters who live in the following residence halls vote at Cortland Water Works: Alger, Bishop, Dragon, Hayes, Hendrick, Higgins, Shea, Smith and Whitaker halls along with Casey, Glass and Smith towers.

Registered voters who live in the following residence halls vote at Christ Community Church, located at 292 Tompkins St.: Cheney and DeGroat halls.

The van provided by NYPIRG will leave Corey Union on the hour and stop at the three polling sites. SUNY Cortland students should have received the van schedule, additional information about the voting locations and a voter’s guide through email.
