Those who want to participate in next year's primary elections need to ensure their voter registration by Friday Oct. 13. Voters need to be registered in the party whose primary they want to vote by the aforementioned deadline.
New York’s archaic election laws force us to plan almost a year ahead to be able to vote in primaries.
With the explosion in interest in running for office since the presidential election being sure you can vote in your parties' primaries next year seems evermore important.
2018 will see important local and state races. Be sure you can get out and vote for the candidates that most represent your values, and be aware of this deadline.
