Primary Voter Registration Deadline Is Friday

Wed, 02/12/2020 - 12:57

New York State's presidential primary election is scheduled for April 28, and Friday is the deadline to register with a party or change one's party affiliation to be able to vote in that primary.

Applications must be received by the board of elections by Friday, so those not yet registered here and who have not yet put their applications in the mail will have to do so in person at the Suffolk County Board of Elections headquarters at 335 Yaphank Avenue in Yaphank.

In New York, only those registered with a political party can vote in that party's primary.

Voters must be United States citizens at least 18 years of age, and must be a resident of the state for at least 30 days prior to the election. They may not be registered to vote in another municipality. They must not have been on parole for a felony conviction, unless a court has specifically restored voting rights, and must not be in prison.

Registration forms and other information are online.
