In accordance with NYS Election Law, if you wish to change your party enrollment in time for the 2020 Primary Elections, the Board of Elections must receive your registration form by February 14th. Any enrollment change request received after February 14th will not take effect until June 30th, 2020 (even if they were postmarked on or before Feb. 14th).

Remember that in New York State, if you wish to vote in a Primary Election, you must be an enrolled member of the political party for which the Primary is being held.
