Register to Vote

Qualifications to Register to Vote
  • Be a U.S. citizen
  • Be 18 years old (Note: You must be 18 years old by the date of the election in which you want to vote.)

You can register in person at your county board of elections or any New York State Agency-based voter registration center. Registration forms may also be picked up at your town clerk's office. Your local banks, post offices and libraries also have forms available.

You may also download a voter registration form (PDF). Once the form is completed, you need to print the form and sign it. Then, mail the form to the County Board of Elections.
