2017 Voters Guide.

To the Voter:

Voting is an important part of being a U. S. citizen. The people who are elected this year will make decisions about things that directly affect your life, like your taxes, the education of your children and/or grandchildren. Voting is your opportunity to choose the decision makers and tell them what you want. In NY State, before you can vote you need to register (sign up).

To vote you must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen
  • Be 18 years old by November 7, 2017
  • Live at your present address for at least 30 days before Election Day
  • Be registered to vote

Voter information is available at:
