Queens Conversations: How Do I Vote?

Clearly this is a critical moment in our history and it may never have been more important for our citizens to vote for the candidates of their choice. It is a sad fact, however, that too many votes are never cast or are never counted. Why? People can become confused about how to register, fail to locate their proper polling place, incorrectly read a ballot, or make crucial mistakes when mailing their early or absentee ballots. This episode of Queens Conversations will review all these important considerations and explain the correct steps you can take to ensure that YOUR VOTE COUNTS!
