Elections are Coming! National Voter Registration Day is September 20
Are you ready to vote? September 20 is National Voter Registration Day! Use this day to make a plan to vote in the November 8 general election. The last day to register to vote in New York is October 14, whether you register in person or online. If you mail in your voter registration application, it must be postmarked no later than October 14.
Each of us has a different experience with voting. You may be a first-time voter or a veteran super voter who votes in every election. You may have strayed a bit from the voting process and want to get re-engaged. Whatever your reason, registering to vote is the first step to take to participate in our democratic process.
National Voter Registration Day was first observed in 2012 as a nonpartisan civic day celebrating our democracy. Since then, nearly 4.7 million voters have registered to vote on September 20. Data from the 2020 US Census show that as many as one in four eligible Americans are not registered to vote. Don’t be left behind on Election Day!
This year, there are numerous federal, state, and local offices on the ballot, including:
- Federal level: US Senate and US Congress
- State level: Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, Comptroller, State Senate, State Assembly, and a State Ballot Measure
