With the general elections less than two weeks away, the immigrant organization Make the Road New York is trying to reach thousands of newly eligible voters in low-income neighborhoods across Queens, Staten Island and Brooklyn.
On Sunday, members of the group were out to make sure residents understand the importance of casting a ballot.
"The Senate of the United States can pass immigration reform, the governor can put more money in our schools, the Attorney General can protect us from discrimination. And we need to make sure that our communities are represented very well and very strongly on November 2nd," said Ana Maria Archila of Make the Road New York.
Dozens of volunteers went door-to-door urging people to get to the polls.
