Register Eligible Students to Vote

And Vote Early, Vote by Mail, or Vote on November 3

In New York State, voter registration among 18- and 19-year-old is 8% lower today than in 2016; in contrast, registration among this group is up 32% in New Jersey and up 26% in Vermont.

The good news is that New York recently passed historic voting reforms that reduce barriers to voter registration and turnout:
  • NYS now has 10 days of early voting, starting Saturday, October 24
  • New Yorkers can request absentee ballots anytime from now through October 27 to participate in the November election
  • 16- and 17-year-olds can pre-register NOW so that they are automatically registered on their 18th birthday.

Here are some helpful links for voter registration and education to help your student register and vote in the upcoming presidential election or in the future after their 18th birthday:
