Voter deadlines are near

TRI-COUNTY AREA—With the primary election over, all voters can now get ready to vote for a number of candidates in the Nov. 2 general election.
However, there are some dates to remember for registering to vote and obtaining absentee ballots.  If you haven’t registered to vote, you can do it in person at the county board of elections or by mailing in the form.
If mailed, voter registration must be postmarked no later than Oct. 8, and received by the board no later than Oct. 13.  If done in person, you must register by Oct. 8 to vote in the general election.
According to the New York State Board of Elections, being honorably discharged from the military or becoming a naturalized citizen after Oct. 8 are two exceptions.  In these cases, the people may register in person up until Oct. 22.
Voters who changed addresses need to update the board of elections.  If the county board of elections receives an address change by Oct. 13, it must be processed for the Nov. 2 election.
Absentee ballot forms can be picked up at the county board of election offices or online, at http://www.elections.state.ny.us.  These too can be mailed in or submitted in person.  According to the state, the last day an application or letter of application can be postmarked by is Oct. 26.
The last day to apply for an absentee ballot in person is Nov. 1.  This is also the last day a mailed ballot can be postmarked.  The county board of elections must receive the mailed in vote by Nov. 9.  The final day to hand deliver the absentee ballot is Nov. 2.
Military voters also have different dates.  The last day the board of elections will receive an application, if not previously registered, is Oct. 22.  Applications from those already registered are due by Oct. 26.
Nov. 1 is the last day to apply personally for a general election absentee ballot.  According to the state, military voter ballots to the county must be post marked by Nov. 1, and received by Nov. 15.
For more, contact your local board of elections.  The numbers by county are:
Yates County Board of Elections:  315-536-5135
