Find Easy Access to Voting Information at Dedicated Spot in LPL Main Room
Some community members are unsure of their status regarding the Nov. 8 national election.
Are you registered? Where is your polling place? Liverpool Public Library staff members decided to help clear up questions by placing a dedicated computer in the library. That's the subject of this week's community library column for the Eagle News Online/Star Review.

With Election Day 2022 approaching, community members can use the designated Voters Kiosk in the Liverpool Public Library to easily look up the information they need to make sure they’re ready for Tuesday, Nov. 8.
One decisive move on the computer set up inside the big circle in the main room takes the user directly to the 2022 Voter Information page at LPL.org.
From there, it’s easy to navigate to critical information such as registration status and proper polling place location.
“The library building is involved as a polling place,” said LPL computer services staffer Naif Abraham, who was instrumental in the setup of the website page and information kiosk. “It’s so important for the library to have a one-stop shop for people to check on things, their own registration, where to go to vote, to provide a springboard to find what they want and need to find.”
LPL community engagement staffer Cindy Hibbert witnessed the Voters Kiosk in use during her recent Let’s Talk About It: Woman’s Suffrage Event, during which patrons were able to pick up voter registration forms and partake in a Sworn Again! Ceremony.
“One person who thought they were registered found out they weren’t, and was able to register right on the spot,” Hibbert said. “It’s great for all kinds of information. I was able to use it right now to look up that the Onondaga County election board needs to receive election registration forms by Oct. 14 or change of address forms by Oct. 19.”
