Voter Registration Deadline Is Saturday

Saturday is the deadline for in-person registration to vote in November's general election.


You have less than five days to register to vote. That's if you are doing it in-person.

If you have not already registered to vote, or officially changed your address, the deadline for in-person registration is Saturday, Oct 13. The Rockland County Board of Elections office will be open on Saturday from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. for in-person registration. The Board of Elections office is located at 11 New Hempstead Road in New City.

Note that mailed registration applications must be postmarked by Oct. 12 and received by Oct. 17 to be eligible for the Nov. 6 General Election. 

You can download registration forms in English or Spanish from the Rockland County Board of Elections website.
