Under New York State Election Law, the two political parties with the most votes in a Gubernatorial election run the County Boards of Elections and are responsible for hiring the people who serve as Polling Place Inspectors and Poll Coordinators.
Inspectors receive paid training and $180 a day.
If you are a registered Democrat in Garden City and want to be an Inspector, email us at
The Garden City Democratic Club is on vacation for the summer..
The Club will feature a Meet the Candidates Night in October and will have guest speakers each month about a wide variety from political, civic, charitable or generally informative topics.
We are also looking to establish a project called, "Letters to Santa Claus." The program entails reading letters to Santa written by children and mailed. Donations of money and toys will be solicited in order to fill the 'wishes' of the letter writers by obtaining presents to brighten the holidays for those less fortunate.
Other projects will be determined as the needs arise, like storm relief, so keep visiting our site or, better yet, become a member to be sure you don't miss out on the activities.
