Friday, Oct. 14, is the last day to register to vote

By Patrick Donachie

New Yorkers who are not registered to vote have until the end of the day Friday to ensure that they can cast a ballot in this year’s general election, including the vote for the next president.

People who want to register, or to find out if they are registered to vote, can visit voting.nyc to check their voter registration status and to print voter registration forms. To qualify to vote in the upcoming election, the voter registration forms must be postmarked by midnight Oct. 14. Potential voters can also register to cast ballots online at the site for the Department of Motor Vehicles, at https://dmv.ny.gov/.

The city also announced a new project called Voters of New York, which the city said “highlights stories from everyday New Yorkers sharing their personal thoughts about voting and why they plan to vote in this election.” You can see the portraits and testimonials at https://www.instagram.com/votersofnewyork/.
