On June 22nd, there will be primary elections for city offices including Mayor, Public Advocate, Comptroller, Borough President, and City Council. The deadline for updating your party affiliation and registering to vote is this Sunday, February 14th.

Remember, you must be registered with a political party to vote in the NYC primary election! That means if you want to vote for candidates running in the Democratic, Republican, or other party primaries, you must be registered with that political party.

If you don't get a registration card within 4 to 6 weeks of completing your application, call us to see if your application was processed.

Once you register, you are permanently registered unless:

  • You moved your residence outside the city or county in which you were registered.
  • You are an inactive voter who has not voted in any election, including two consecutive Federal Elections, and have not confirmed your address during that period.
  • You are convicted of a Felony and imprisoned or on parole. However, you can vote after conviction of a Felony if you have received a pardon from the Governor or you are on probation.
  • You are adjudged mentally incompetent by a court.

You can update your party affiliation by mailing in a new voter registration form to the NYC Board of Elections or dropping it off at your local Board of Election office.

If you have a New York State ID, you can update your registration online with the DMV. You can also use the voter registration form to update your address if you have recently moved.
