New York Voter Registration Deadline Is Friday

Alexander F. Yuan

New Yorkers have until Friday to register to vote on Election Day.

That deadline applies to postmarks or any application that’s hand-delivered to county boards of elections or online.

New voters will need a New York issued ID card, such as a driver’s license, to apply.

All changes of address registrations – both mailed or delivered in person – must be received by the county board of elections by October 14.

For more information on voting check out the WSHU 2020 Voters' Guide.
