St. Lawrence County Board of Elections supplying registration forms to area post offices, municipal offices
CANTON --- The St. Lawrence County Board of Elections is supplying registration forms to all area post offices and municipal offices.
Voters can pick them up during regular business hours at all of these locations. Updating registration is suggested when addresses or names are changed.Newly-registered voters will be able to vote in any upcoming primaries, but they must register in the party of their choice to do so; one must be enrolled in a party to be eligible for voting in that party’s primaries.
Those who are already registered to vote and enrolled in a party have missed the deadline to change party affiliation and then vote in a different party’s 2018 primaries, as the annual deadline to change party affiliation for 2018 was last October.
Primary elections occur in the parties based on the candidates’ filing of petitions leading up to each primary, which will determine which races require primaries. Potential upcoming voting timeframes for 2018 include a Federal Primary of June 26, an early September State and Local Primary, and the General Election on Nov. 6.
All voters registered by Oct. 12 2018 will be eligible to vote in the upcoming General Election on Nov 6 2018.
