Tomorrow, October 8th, is the last day to register to vote in the November general election in New York State. If you haven't registered yet, you can go to the Board of Elections office (map) until Friday at 5:00pm. Mailed-in registrations must be postmarked no later than tomorrow as well. (If anyone in Dryden needs a registration form, you can call me at 256-5334.)
There will also be a last-chance registration session on Saturday, October 9th from 2-9pm at the Dryden Town Hall (map) and at other town and city halls in the county.
It's also time to think about absentee ballots. You can get an application at the Board of Elections office or online. Applications by mail must be sent by October 26th, and applications in person at the Board of Elections offices may be made until November 1st.
