THIS JUST IN: Voter Headquarters to offer variety of services on Near Eastside

The John Boner Neighborhood Center has led an effort to create a one-stop shop for citizens who want to vote in the Nov. 3 general election. Beginning Saturday, Sept. 5, the temporary 10 East Voter Headquarters will open at 2301 E. 10th St. (the corner of Beville Avenue).

The Voter Headquarters will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays through Oct. 3, as well as Monday, Oct. 5 – the final day to register.

At the 10 East Voter Headquarters citizens can:

  • Register to vote.
  • Verify their voter registration status.
  • Get voting questions answered.
  • Pick up grab-and-go “Voting 101” postcards to canvass their neighborhood.
  • View an art exhibition by Near Eastside artist Justin Brown.

The first 100 people to register to vote will receive a limited edition “VOTE” tote bag. Individuals who stop by and register to vote or check their voter registration status will also be entered to win gift cards for 10th Street restaurants, said Joanna Nixon, art director for the advocacy group known as 10 East.

COVID-19 safety and cleaning protocols will be in place.  Visitors are asked to wear face coverings when visiting.
