The easiest way to register to vote in New York is to visit the New York State Department of Elections web site (Best way) and register in person at your county board of elections. You can also download the PDF version of the New York State Voter Registration Form. Complete voter registration details can be found here.
You can also fill out the national voter registration form at the bottom of this page provided by PresidentialElection.com as a free public service. (You will have to mail it in)
Qualifications to Register to Vote
be a United States citizen;
be 18 years old by December 31 of the year in which you file this form (note: you must be 18 years old by the date of the general, primary or other election in which you want to vote);
live at your present address at least 30 days before an election;
not be in prison or on parole for a felony conviction and;
not be adjudged mentally incompetent
Should I Ever Give My Social Security Number Out On-Line?
No, you shouldn’t. In our on-line Voter Registration Section, some states such as Hawaii, Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Ohio, and New Mexico, may ask for your social security number to prevent fraudulent registration and voting.
At no time does PresidentialElection.com need your Social Security number for any reason. In the states that request a social security number for processing, we have added a safety feature in the description “If you do not want to type in your Social Security number in this form for security reasons, you can leave it blank. When you print your form to mail, you will still have the option to write it in manually before you mail in your registration application if your state requires it. We recommend typing in just the first three numbers and writing the rest in by hand after printing.. The referenced states may need that information to process your application. If you have any questions about any fields, just point your curser at the question mark beside each field.
