The New York State voter registration deadline is this week. The New York State Board of Elections requires all voters who are registering by mail to have their registration forms postmarked by Friday, October 14 in order for the Board of Elections to receive the form for processing by Wednesday, October 19.

If you recently moved to New York from another state, you must register to vote in New York State. If you have changed your address from one New York location to another, you must re-register to vote using the same form. If you can vote, we encourage you to register to vote and cast your ballot on November 8.
