Deadline Extended for Change of Party Enrollment
Due to a new Executive Order the deadline for a change of enrollment had been extended up until Feb. 16. Forms received at your local board of elections up to and including Feb. 16 will be accepted and processed. If you submit your party change online through DMV, the deadline was midnight Feb. 15 for electronic delivery on Feb. 16.

Changes received on or after Feb. 17 until seven days after the June Primary will be set aside and opened the seventh day following the June Primary and entered in the voter's registration record.

During this time of social distancing and quarantining, remember that many transactions are available online through DMV Voter Registration. You may:

  • Register to vote online
  • Update your voter registration record (change of address, name)
  • Change your party enrollment. However, any change in party affiliation will take effect after the June 22, 2021 Federal, State and Local Primaries.






In order to register to vote, you must:

  • Be a U.S. Citizen
  • Be 18 years of age by the date of the general, primary or other election in which you want to vote.
  • Live at your present address at least 30 days before an election.
  • Not be in prison or on parole for a felony conviction (unless parolee pardoned or restored rights of citizenship).
  • Not claim the right to vote elsewhere.

    • Party enrollment changes take effect immediately: Per the NYS Election Law Chapter 316 as of Sept. 27, 2019, all party enrollment changes now take effect immediately until Feb. 14, 2021. This means for a valid application, the party change will take effect the same day it is filed. (see Extension date above due to Governor’s 2021 Executive Order)
    • However, one exception exists for this year’s 2021 Elections: All party changes filed after Feb, 16, 2021 are not effective until seven days after the June 2021 Primary Election.
