Yesterday, the Board of Elections was invited to Binghamton University's "Engaged Binghamton" summit so that Republican Commissioner Bob Nielsen and Democratic Deputy Commissioner Mariliz Pines could be recognized for their Community Engagement efforts with Binghamton University.
The Board of Elections has been working with BU's Center for Community Engagement in order to help them foster a more civically active and engaged student climate.
Technology Coordinator Christina Dutko accepted the award on behalf of Mariliz Pines.
Over the past year, the Board of Elections helped the CCE increase voter turnout substantially on Binghamton's campus.
Below are some more photos from the event.
