With the general election coming soon on Nov. 6, the countdown to get registered to vote is on.
There is a voter registration drive going on Wednesday at the Southampton Cultural Center from 4 to 9 p.m.
According to the Suffolk County Board of Elections website, in order to register to vote, an individual must be a United States citizen; be 18 years old by Dec. 31 of the year in which the form is filed — and be 18 years old by the date of the election — must have lived at their present address for at least 30 days before an election, not be in jail or on parole for a felony conviction, and not claim the right to vote elsewhere.
Call 631-852-4554 to request a voter application form. A PDF version of the New York State Voter Registration form can be downloaded by visiting the Suffolk County Board of Election website; forms are available in English and Spanish. Forms can also be filled out on the site and mailed to the Suffolk County Board of Elections, P.O. Box 700, Yaphank NY 11980.
Potential voters can also register in person at Suffolk County Board of Elections, or at any New York State Agency-Based voter registration center.
