Friday is the deadline to register to vote in New York. It is important that Local 1049 has all of our members registered and voting in this important election.
Not only are you voting for the President of the country, but you are also electing your Congress members, State Senators, and State Assembly Members. All of these people have a say in a number of areas that concern us, from regulations on energy production and the change to becoming a carbon neutral state, to the rules governing what our union can and can't negotiate. These elected officials have a say.
That's why we need you registered. Elected officials need to know that IBEW 1049 is a strong force that should be listened to. The IBEW has set up a great website where you can register to vote and check to make sure your registration is active.
Please Note: You need to re-register if you have moved recently or changed your name (ie. got married or divorced).
