Voter Registration Deadline Approaching
New York's Board of Elections says registration deadlines are looming for state residents who intend to vote Nov. 4.
Elections include governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, comptroller, 213 seats in the state Legislature, many judgeships, congressional seats and local contests.
Ballot propositions would change the legislative redistricting process, authorize legislators to read electronic bills instead of printed bills, and authorize $2 billion borrowing for computers in schools.
According to the board, mail-in registration forms must be postmarked by midnight on Oct. 10 and received by no later than Oct. 15.
The registration form can be found at state and federal offices and downloaded from the board's website at http://www.elections.ny.gov .
Would-be voters can also register in person by Oct. 10 at county boards of elections and many state agency offices.
