Anyone wanting to vote in the upcoming Democratic or Republican New York primaries must register to vote by March 25 in order to cast ballots on April 19.

New Yorkers looking to register to vote, or to change their enrollment information, can do so by using the state’s online voter registration service on the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles’ website, in person at their county board of elections or at any New York State Agency-Based voter registration center.

To register to vote, a New Yorker must:

  • Be a United States citizen.
  • Be 18 years old by December 31 of the year in which you submit the form (note: you must be 18 years old by the date of the general, primary or other election in which you want to vote).
  • Live at your present address at least 30 days before an election.
  • Not be in prison or on parole for a felony conviction.
  • Not be adjudged mentally incompetent by a court.
  • Not claim the right to vote elsewhere.


All WNY is made possible thanks to coffee and sleep deprivation.
Buy us a cup? (of coffee, we can handle the sleep deprivation ourselves)
