In light of recent changes to New York’s election laws, the League of Women Voters of Cortland County is hosting a forum on Monday (February 18) from 2-4 p.m. at the Cortland Community Center (Rail Road station) on Central Avenue in Cortland.
The state legislature recently updated New York’s election laws to make registration and voting more accessible to voters. One of these changes involves holding both state and federal primaries on the same day.
Monday’s forum will start with an update on the changes by Alison King, president of the LWVCC. It will also include a time line for filing petitions.
Two Cortland County Legislators, Beau Harbin (LD-2, Cortland) and Kelly Preston (LD-10, Homer), will also share their insights on running for political office. Both were elected to the county legislature in the fall of 2018.
