Persons 18 or older may register to vote after 30 days of residency by filling out and returning forms available from each county’s Board of Elections. Registration requirements include U.S. citizenship for at least 30 days and being at least 18 years old by the day after the election. You must also be a resident of your election district for at least 30 days prior to the election.

Many options are available for registration, including completing the paperwork at the time you register and title your care or obtain a New York drivers license. You can register at the courthouse of the county in which you reside or by mail if you obtain a mail-in form at the appropriate municipal office or post office.
