Voting is the cornerstone of democracy in the United States of America, and a fundamental right of all citizens.  Make sure you exercise your rights by registering and voting in the upcoming November election.

Applications to Register to Vote in New York State (either by mail or in-person) are due by OCTOBER 14TH.  

You are eligible to vote if you are a United States Citizen, meet your state's residency requirements, are 18 years of age on or before Election Day, and register to vote by your State's deadline.  

More information is available at:
If you are not from New York State and are wondering where you should register to vote, check out the STUDENT VOTING GUIDE 2016 at Brennan Center for Justice.  This page has helpful, state-by-state information for students and other young people who are voting for the first time.  Remember to give yourself extra time if you need to file for an absentee ballot.  

Remember that voting is just as important in non-Presidential election years.  Always keep your voter registration and address up-to-date and pay attention to the Board of Elections in your home state
