SENECA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) - Sen. Charles Schumer wants the hometown of the National Women’s Hall of Fame to play a role in placing a woman on the $10 bill.

Treasury officials are expected to announce this summer who will replace Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill after listening to suggestions at town hall meetings and online.

Schumer believes Seneca Falls should host a town hall. The Finger Lakes town is considered the birthplace of the women’s rights movement and is home to the National Women’s Hall of Fame.

Schumer in Seneca Falls on Wednesday also will launch an online poll asking state residents their preference for the honor.

The bill’s redesign will be unveiled in 2020 to mark the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote.
