The BOE plans to set up voter registration drives in all of Livingston County’s 17 Town Halls before the General Election on Nov. 7, 2017. The goals are to register anyone who has not yet done so, answer any questions about the elections or the BOE and bring the services of the BOE more into the public spotlight.
