Voter Registration

Register to vote To vote in New York City you must be a U.S. citizen, a resident of New York City for 30 days by Election Day, 18 years of age by Election Day, and you must be registered. Although you can register any time during the year, your form must be delivered or mailed at least 25 days before the next election for it to be effective for that election.

You can download and print a voter registration form from the Board of Elections Web site. Or you can get a postage-paid registration form by calling 1-866-VOTE-NYC (212-868-3692).

Your registration is permanent unless you move, change your name, or have not voted for five years. You may also register in person at your borough Board of Elections (or any agency participating in the National Voter Registration Act) on any business day throughout the year. Forms are available from your borough Board of Elections (see addresses below), town and city hall, post office, political parties, and various state offices.
