Friday is the deadline to register to vote to be eligible for this year’s elections, the New York state Board of Elections said in a reminder announcement.
Mail-in voter registration forms must be postmarked by midnight Oct. 9 and received by a board of elections no later than Oct 14 to be valid for the upcoming general election.
New Yorkers wanting to register in-person may do so at their county boards of elections and at many state agency offices throughout the state but must do so no later than Oct. 9 to be eligible to vote in the Nov. 3 general election.
The voter registration form can be downloaded at www.elections.ny.gov. Alternatively, if you have an established account at the state Department of Motor Vehicles, you may register online at the MyDMV site. You can also register or find forms at most state and federal government offices.
Persons who are unsure whether they are registered, wish to verify their current address, or find out where to vote, may look-up this information at voterlookup.elections.ny.gov/.
