Arts & Music Festival with Voter Registration drive this weekend

From the desk of Councilman Ravi Bhalla:




Dear Friends and Neighbors,
The nice weather, baseball season, and so much more is finally here!  I hope you’re enjoying Hoboken, and all it has to offer, as much as I am.  One of the best Hoboken outdoor events is right around the corner - the Hoboken Arts and Music Festival is May 1 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Washington Street (from Observer Highway to 7th Street).
Please stop by our table and say hello as we kick off our 2016 Voter Registration Drive, which will run until October so that residents are able to vote in the upcoming Presidential and the local school board elections. Please also make sure you register to vote or update your registration in time this Saturday for the June Presidential primaries and the November elections.
Our table at the festival will offer an opportunity to register new voters, meet with residents to answer questions, discuss issues and offer assistance.  As part of our voter registration efforts, we can also assist with voters who have moved within Hoboken since the last election so they are registered at their new polling location.
Also, if you’re interested in helping volunteer by staffing the table, please let me know as we can use your help!  This is a great way to meet your friends and neighbors, discuss what matters to you in Hoboken, while also helping register new voters. Please email me at councilmanbhalla@gmail.com if you are interested in volunteering for an hour or two at the festival.
I’ll post the location of my table on my Facebook page on the morning of the festival. I look forward to seeing you, and as always, please let me know if I can be of any assistance to you with city issues – I’m always happy to help!
Sincerely,
Ravinder S. Bhalla
Councilman-at-Large
