Last Chance: Primary Voter Registration for State, Local Races

Deadline is only a few days away.

Friday marks an important registration deadline for the Sept. 13 state and local primaries in New York, so if you were hoping to vote but don't have your registration set then here is some key info to know.


Application must be postmarked no later than Aug. 17 and received by the Board of Elections no later than Aug. 17 to be eligible to vote in the State & Local Primary.


You may register at your local board of elections or any state agency participating in the National Voter Registration Act, on any business day throughout the year but, to be eligible to vote in the State and Local Primary, your application must be received no later than Aug. 17.


Notices of change of address from registered voters received by Aug. 24 by a county board of elections must be processed and entered in the records in time for the State & Local Primary.

"Suffolk County Voter Information Services" is unethical at it very least and is the worst kind of fraud. Patch here is your chance to get a big scoop expose the dirty trickster and let folks know here in Suffolk Co. we do not put up with this type of voter suppression.

Once again, Earl Long is right, this time re the bogus "Suffolk County Voter Information Services." Thanks to Patch for the quick work in taking down the post and banning the poster, but it shouldn't end there. You do have an opportunity to expose a rather blatant political dirty trick if you can trace the perpetrator(s), either by working back from how the post was originally submitted, or through whatever other investigative means you have. Good luck.

In Nassau County, there is an Independence primary for Judicial Candidates. Teresa Corrigan is running and is endorsed by the Independence Party. I have not found any other information online about the other candidates yet.
