Help people get out to vote
Parents2PollsTompkins is a brand new, grassroots non-partisan initiative focused on helping parents of young children get to the polls this Election Day, November 6th. We are currently seeking volunteers to help us offer the following free services in Ithaca and at polling places around Tompkins County:
- FREE drop-in childcare at Southside Community Center on Election Day
- FREE rides to the polls equipped with car seats.
- FREE parking lot support: parent volunteers will help voting parents avoid car seat struggles by watching kids in the car for a few minutes while the parent vote, or by standing in lines in their stead if need be.
