Local Voter Registration Days for 2016

News from Board of Elections, Posted on Fri, 09/30/2016 - 12:46pm

Commissioners Michael Brisky and Kevin Burleson of the Cattaraugus County Board of Elections have established local registration days of Thursday, October 6th and Saturday, October 15th in Cattaraugus County for the purpose of voter registration for the General Election to be held on November 8, 2016.

New York State Election Law requires that in presidential election years the board of elections shall schedule local voter registration event on two separate days with evening hours, one of which must be a Saturday. This schedule provides an additional opportunity for people to register in time to vote in the General Election. It also affords a convenient way for those persons who have moved but have not yet notified the board of elections to complete a new voter registration form providing the updated address. People registering to vote for the first time should be prepared to show identification and provide either their drivers' license number or the last four digits of their social security number. Any person opting to register to vote for the first time on Saturday, October 15th must do so in person.

Registration hours are set on Thursday, October 6th, 2016 from 5:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. and Saturday, October 15th, 2016 from 2:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. Three locations in Cattaraugus County will have board of elections staff on site for your assistance.
