Election Day Hours & Rockland Voices: Voting Rights for Women

The New City Library will open early at 6:30am for Election Day, November 6th, so don't forget to exercise your right to vote [POLLS OPEN AT 6].  If you don't know your polling place or want to view a sample ballot, try this link from the Rockland County Board of Elections:

While you are here make sure your card is up to date so you can check out books, movies and much more.  You'll also want to make certain you visit the exhibit Rockland Voices: Voting Rights for Women, on loan from the Historical Society of Rockland County as it explores the struggle of women to gain the right to vote here in Rockland County.  This year marks the Women's Suffrage Centennial in New York State, so the exhibit will remain up throughout the rest of 2017.  Listen to a selection of stories from Rockland County women at the Soundcloud link below.
