To vote in a primary election, you must be registered as a member of the party holding the primary. To change your party enrollment, you must send the BOE a request no later than 25 days before the general election preceding the year you become eligible. In other words,
In New York State the deadline for a previously registered voter to declare or change a party affiliation was October 2016. If you are a registered voter and did not declare or change party affiliation before 9 October 2016 you are not eligible to vote in the 2017 primaries. New registrants who declare a party affiliation when they register are eligible to vote in the 2017 primaries.
The League is non-partisan -- we never support or oppose any political party or candidate for elective office. But we are political. Members are encouraged to fully take part in the political process. We hope that as you get to know us through this site, you'll consider joining us in person! The public is invited to attend all general League meetings. Check out our Calendar for scheduled events.
