Get Out the Vote!

without comments

Tomorrow – Friday, October 12th is the deadline for voter registration! But not only for voter registration, but also to change party affiliation for next year. After years of voting as an Independent and being locked out of primaries and telling myself that I need to switch out of Independent to Dem in order to have a valuable vote in NY/NYC, I made the switch online and it only took a few minutes:

Direct link to voter registration:

For U.S. citizen who now live in other countries but whose last U.S. address was in New York, email registration works.

Four steps:
1. Get your NY absentee ballot request here, pre-filled via this clever web form:
https://www.usvotefoundation.org/

2. Sign it.

3. Take a picture/make a PDF, and email that to the address provided before Friday. You should get an email confirmation back same day.

4. Mail your hard copy. This way your registration goes through even if it arrives after the Friday deadline.

WE MUST ALL VOTE TO HELP MAKE THIS “DEMOCRACY” WORK.
