Below are some random
resources we collected in the past.
The editor at Free Williamsburg felt they were just too valuable to
be placed out of reach in the archive. Here they are:
Voter registration | online
will act as if what I do makes a difference." -William James
You may have moved
here recently, you may consider yourself quite transient and consequently
don't really give a shit, you may have lived here for a while and still
don't really give a shit. You still get a vote.
Registering to vote is painfully simple. Simply click
here to register online.
Or to do it the old-fashioned way:
1) You can register
at the motor vehicle office when you renew your license, or at a state
office when you are applying for public assistance.
2) You can mail in your registration. Call the Kings County Board of Elections
to have a form sent to you. The number is (718) 330-2260.
3) You can register in person at the Board of Elections Office. It is
open from nine to five, Monday through Friday, and is located at 345 Adams
4) You can also request an application online, or download one, at www.elections.state.ny.us.
In order to vote in
an election, your registration form has got to be postmarked at
least 25 days before the election. The next election is for the senatorial
primaries, and is on September 12th, which means that only voter registration
forms sent before August 18th will be accepted. New York primaries are
closed, so only voters registered as members of a certain party may vote
in that party's primary. The general senatorial election is on November
7th, which means that voter registrations must be postmarked no later
than October 13th. Now get on it.
Also, here is a list
of your elected officials and numbers at which to reach them:
