Voter information tables will be scattered across East Hampton and Southampton Towns and on Shelter Island on Tuesday, which is National Voter Registration Day. 

The League of Women Voters of the Hamptons, Shelter Island, and the North Fork will host the tables, distributing voter registration forms, absentee ballot applications, fliers with the 12 early-voting dates, sites, and times, and a League brochure describing the pros and cons of the five propositions on the ballot on Election Day, Nov. 2. 

Voter information tables will be set up outside the Springs General Store from 8 to 10 a.m., the Montauk Post Office from 10 a.m. to noon, the Montauk Library from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and the East Hampton Post Office from noon to 2 p.m. Tables will also be outside the Bridgehampton Post Office from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the Stop and Shop and Rogers Memorial Library, both in Southampton, from 3 to 5 p.m. 

A voter information table will be outside the Shelter Island Library from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. From noon to 2 p.m., tables will be outside the Hampton Bays Dollar Store and the King Kullen supermarket in Hampton Bays, and inside the Westhampton Library in Westhampton Beach from 4 to 6 p.m. 

There will also be a table on Sunday from 3:45 to 5:30 p.m. for the Spanish Mass at St. Rosalie's Church in Hampton Bays. 

The mail-in deadline for voter registration forms is Oct. 8. The mail-in deadline for the absentee ballot application is October 18, while the mail-in postmark deadline for the return of absentee ballots is Election Day. Voter registration forms are also available at the New York State Board of Elections website: elections.ny.gov. 

Early voting happens from Oct. 23 to 31. For East Hampton Town residents, the early voting site will be Community Room 2 at Windmill Village, at 219 Accabonac Road. For Southampton Town residents, the site is the Stony Brook Southampton University campus gym, at 70 Tuckahoe Road. There is no early voting site on Shelter Island. Registered voters in Suffolk County may vote at any of the county's 12 early voting sites.
