How do I register to vote?
Am I registered to vote?
The law has changed! Voters who move within the state do not need to re-register to vote in their new county. However, if you have moved, you MUST give the your original post office your change of address! Registration information will be updated when the Board of Elections (BOE) receives the notice of change of address.
Go the NY State voter lookup search engine to make sure if you’re registered. It will also tell you your polling place. If your are not in there, you may have to re-register.
