Tuesday is National Voter Registration Day, and the League of Women Voters of the Hamptons, Shelter Island, and the North Fork will observe the day with voter information tables throughout the East End.
The league will distribute voter registration forms, absentee ballot applications, fliers with the early voting dates, sites, and times, and information on the referendum that will be on the Nov. 8 ballot, which would implement a .5-percent real estate transfer tax to pay for affordable housing projects.

On Tuesday the league’s tables will be stationed outside the Montauk Post Office from 10 a.m. to noon; the East Hampton Post Office, One Stop Market in Springs, Schiavoni’s Market in Sag Harbor, and the Bridgehampton Post Office, all from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.; the Rogers Memorial Library in Southampton from 3 to 5 p.m.; the Shelter Island Library from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.; King Kullen in Hampton Bays from noon to 2 p.m., and the Westhampton Free Library from 3 to 5 p.m.
