Village Elections Are Tuesday
Three villages – Bronxville, Scarsdale and Tuckahoe – have contested elections this Tuesday, September 15th. Elections are uncontested in Briarcliff Manor, Buchanan, Hastings-on-Hudson, Larchmont, Pelham Manor, Pleasantville, and Sleepy Hollow. The elections, originally to be held this past spring, were moved to September because of COVID-19.

Help Get Out the College Vote
Westchester resident and gap year student Abe Baker-Butler helped launch FroshVote to ensure that all college freshmen attending schools in swing states register and vote in the 2020 election. Their Ambassador Program embraces relational organizing by connecting recent high school graduates and current students with the resources they need to get their swing state friends and classmates registered and voting in swing states where they are beginning college.
