Voter Registration Deadlines in New York
I think it's safe to say that this election season is unlike any we have seen before. No matter who your candidate of choice is, people are passionate on both sides of the aisle and, at times, the rhetoric has gotten a bit ugly.
While folks are voicing their opinion and showing their support on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or even lawn signs, none of that will matter if, on election day, they discover that aren't registered to vote. Don't let that happen to you, it's too important.
In New York, in order to be able to vote in the general election on November 8, you must register to vote by October 14. It doesn't matter whether you register on-line, by mail, or in person, the deadline is still the same.
It's easy to do, head to dmv.ny.gov, create an account with your license, select register to vote, complete the form and the DMV will automatically forward that to your local Board of Elections. If you aren't sure if you're registered, and that happens more than you may think, click here to double check.
Being able to vote is a right that thousands of men and women have fought and died to protect, don't make their sacrifice be in vain.
