Voter Registration

Voting is a constitutionally protected right, not a privilege.  Common Cause New York believes that the most fundamental right granted to a citizen in our democracy is the right to vote and to have that vote counted.  All citizens should have equal opportunity to register, vote for the candidate of their choice, and ensure their vote is counted.

With an eye toward the future, we are constantly developing new ways to broaden New York’s electorate by making elections free, fair, more convenient and accessible for all citizens.

Voters must be registered no later than 25 days before a general election. Visit the New York Board of Elections for information about registering to vote, upcoming elections, and more.
