Voting registration ends Friday for midterm elections

New Yorkers have until Oct. 12 to register


New Yorkers have until Friday to register to vote for the upcoming midterm elections on Nov. 6. Erie County currently has 589,157 voters, which is 64 percent of the district’s population, according to a 2017 Census report.

New Yorkers can apply for registration at the Department of Motor Vehicles, at county board registrations and voter registration centers. Voters can also print a registration form online and mail it in or deliver it to a local register office themselves. The local DMV on Sheridan Drive is located 2.5 miles off North Campus.

Voters can also apply for an absentee ballot if they are not in their home district or have an illness.
