Update from a Newsday story of October 11th, 2008, an activist colleague, and information from a phone call to the Suffolk County Board of Elections:

Due to a law about having an in-person day to register during a presidential election, today–Saturday, October 11th–is an extra, last chance day to register to vote throughout New York. Please check with your Board of Elections for details.

From Newsday:

Nassau and Suffolk County residents who have not registered to vote may do so in person Saturday from noon to 9 p.m. at the county boards of election and 24 other sites across Long Island.

For a list of the locations in each county, call Nassau’s Board of Election at 516-571-2411 and Suffolk’s at 631-852-4500. The list of sites in Nassau is also available at www.nassaucountyny.gov/agencies/boe/.

For the 2008 Election – which includes the Presidential Election – the last day to register to vote in New York State is Friday, October 10, 2008. Saturday, October 11, 2008.

You can register to vote by finding a voter registration form at your local Post Office, Library, Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), or Board of Elections. You mail the the form to the Board of Elections. It must be postmarked by TODAY, October 10th, 2008. Or, better yet, since it is the deadline, you may also go to the Board of Elections in Yaphank in person, and ask them to date stamp your filled in application and give you a copy back as proof that you registered on time.

In NY, you may register in the Green Party. Registering with the party puts you on the list at the Board of Elections, sends a message to the major parties, makes you eligible to participate in the statewide committee, and makes it easier for you to run as a candidate with the Green Party. To register Green Party in NY, on the bottom of the form, check off “Other” and write in “Green Party” on the line.

No matter which party you are registered with, you can always choose to vote for a different party’s candidate on election day. Follow this link for a picture of the NY State ballot: link is here.

Note: In New York, there have been problems with voting databases which have led to some voters being “flagged”, which may make it harder for them to vote. New Yorkers for Verified Voting is recommending that people call their county Board of Elections and ask them three questions:

1. Am I registered to vote?
2. Is my name flagged?
3. Will my name be in the pollbook on Election Day?

New Yorkers for Verified Voting warns: Your right to vote may depend on getting those answers now. www.nyvv.org

You CAN register to vote in NY with a criminal record if:

  • You are on Probation
  • You were never sentenced to prison or your sentence was suspended
  • You served your maximum prison sentence
  • You were discharged from Parole
  • You were pardoned
  • You were convicted of a Misdemeanor

You need to re-register after a felony conviction if you served your maximum sentence or were discharged from Parole.  You can register from a county jail, but will need an absentee ballot.  The same rules apply to a federal felony conviction, or if it was a conviction in another state and would be a felony in NY.  The information about voting with a criminal record is from the NYCLU (pdf)
