Last Chance: Register Locally to Vote on Saturday

Southold and Shelter Island will hold weekend registration sessions.

If you've been putting off registering to vote for the upcoming general election on Nov. 6, you’ve got one more shot on Saturday.

The Board of Elections will host voter registration events in Southold at Town Hall and on Shelter Island at the American Legion on Saturday from 12 to 9 p.m.

According to the Suffolk County Board of Elections website, in order to register to vote, an individual must be a United States citizen; be 18 years old by December 31 of the year in which the form is filed -- and be 18 years old by the date of the general, primary, or other election in order to vote -- must have lived at their present address for at least 30 days before an election, not be in jail or on parole for a felony conviction, and not claim the right to vote elsewhere.

An individual can register to vote in person at Suffolk County Board of Elections or at any New York State Agency-Based voter registration center.

Call 631-852-4554 to request a voter application. A PDF version of the New York State Voter Registration form can be downloaded by visiting the Suffolk County Board of Election website; forms are available in English and Spanish. Forms can also be filled out on the site and mailed to the Suffolk County Board of Elections, P.O. Box 700, Yaphank NY 11980.
