Hi New York, if you want to vote in the  2022 midterm elections there are three   steps you need to take.

Register, make  your plan, and of course, vote.   Let's start with getting registered.  If you have a New York drivers license,   you can register online. If not, you’ll need to  print out an application form and mail it in.   Links to both are at  But either way you register, you need to do   it by October 14th.

Once you’re registered,   you’ll get a card in the mail confirming  that your registration went through.   Then it’s time to make your plan  for how you’re going to vote.   If you’re going to be out of town, can’t get to  the polls because you’re ill or disabled, or maybe   you want to vote in New York but you go to college  somewhere else, then you can vote absentee.   To do that, you need to fill out a form to  request your ballot and send it to your Board   of Registrars office by October 24th. But the  sooner you do it the better, so you have time   for them to get your application, mail you a  ballot, and for you to mail it back so that it   gets to them no later than November 8th. Any New York voter can vote in person early from   October 29th through November 6th at an  early voting location.

You can find all   those locations and their hours at this link. Or you can vote on election day on November 8th.   You can look up where you’ll vote at that same  link, and polls are open from 6am to 8pm.   You don’t need to show an ID to vote in New York,  but if you bring a proof of address, like an ID or   the voter card that got sent to you in the mail,  the poll workers can check you in faster.   So once you have your plan for how you’re going  to vote, where you need to go, and what time   you’re going to vote, you just need to follow the  plan, and go vote on or before November 8th.   If you want to know everything that you can vote  for ahead of time, you can find a sample ballot at so you have time to  research candidates and make your decisions.   You don’t have to vote for everything for  your ballot to count, but this is your best   chance to choose who gets to make decisions  about your life: all the way from congress   to your city council or school board. We’ve put all the links for everything you need   to register, vote early, find your polling  place, and locate your sample ballot at

Thank you for voting!
