Be informed! NY Voter Registration Deadline is Fri. Oct. 12!

Are you registered to vote? 

NYPIRG, UUP, and Academic Affairs held a voter registration event over the weekend for Purchase College students & community members, but if you missed it, don’t worry.  You still have until Friday October 12th to register by mail or in person. If you miss this deadline, your voice will NOT be heard in the General Elections on Tuesday, November 6th.

Not a New York resident?

You can also google “voter registration” plus the name of your home state, (i.e. “voter registration Pennsylvania”). Make sure you look for web addresses that end in “.gov”

Not sure if you’re registered?

You can verify your registration status here.
