Get Registered to Vote

Am I registered to vote?

If you don’t know whether you’re registered to vote, you can check on your voter registration here. This will tell you whether you are registered to vote and where you should go to vote on election day. If you recently moved (or moved a long time ago and never updated your voter registration), you’ll find out.

I’m not registered to vote, what do I need to do to register?

You can register to vote, or update your voter registration, using this form, which you can use to change your address or party to the Democratic Party. You then mail it in to the Board of Elections:

Onondaga County 
Board of Elections 

1000 Erie Blvd West
Syracuse, New York 13204

You have until October 11, 2019 to register or update your registration so do not delay and take care of it today!

I like voting on Election Day, can I still do that?
