Keep Your Registration Current

If you move, you should notify the Board of Elections in the City of New York as soon as possible, by re-registering.

 

Your residence address determines the particular contests in which you are eligible to vote. Because of the role that one's address plays in the electoral system, New York State law requires voters to notify the Board of Elections within 25 days of an address change to preserve their voting rights.

 

Controls for Keeping a Registration Current

 

The Board has developed two programs:

 

  1. The Board of Elections compares its file of registered voters to a file received from the United States Postal Service (USPS) of people who have submitted a change of address. For voters that match, the Board of Elections sends a confirmation notice to indeed verify if the voter has moved.
  2. Reports received by city/state agencies (Mental Health, Corrections, Health Dept., Motor Vehicles, etc.) as mechanisms for keeping the voter registry current.
