Registering to Vote and Primary Eligibility

If you are already a registered New York voter, you must already be registered with a party to vote in that party's 2014 primary election. If you are not yet a New York voter, you must register to vote and select a party when doing so in order to vote in that party's primaries.

To vote in the general election, you must register by October 10, 2014, but do not need to select a party affiliation.

To vote in the NYS 2014 Elections, make sure you are registered to vote by the deadlines:

Federal primary elections for Representatives to the U.S. Congress will be held on June 24, 2014. Most voters need to be registered by May 30, 2014 to vote for their party's candidate to get on the general election ballot.

New York State primary elections for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Comptroller, Attorney General, State Senators, and State Assemblymembers be held on September 9, 2014. Most voters need to be registered by August 15, 2014 to vote for their party's candidates to get on the general election ballot.

The general elections for all the federal and state elected officials will be held on November 4, 2014. Most voters need to be registered by October 10, 2014 to vote for their party's candidate to get on the general election ballot.
