REMEMBER: You must be registered in order to vote. You may register if you will be 18 years of age by Election Day; a resident of the county for at least 30 days prior to the election, and a citizen of the United States. If you have moved since the last time you voted, you must re-register.
Remember that New York State has a closed primary. If you have changed your party affiliation, it had to have been done by October 12 2018 in order for you to vote in your new party's primaries in 2019; unless you have moved from a different county or state and are now registered in Suffolk County, as long as you registered 25 days before primary day. As always, please check with the Board of Elections regarding party registration timing requirements.
Although only enrolled members of a party can vote in that party's primary elections, registered voters may vote for any party's candidate on Election Day
