The right to vote is one of our most important freedoms and the Suffolk County GOP urges all citizens to participate in our republican democracy by voting.

Register to Vote/Change Your Registration

Register to Vote/Update Your Voter Registration Online

You can register to vote at the DMV online, by mail or in person at the Suffolk County Board of Elections or any New York State Agency-Based voter registration center.

In order to register to vote, you must:

  • be a U.S. citizen;
  • be 18 years old by December 31st of the year you register;
  • live at your current address at least 30 days before an election;
  • not be in jail or on parole for a felony conviction and;
  • not claim the right to vote elsewhere.

If you are not registered to vote or if you would like to make a change to your voter registration (address change, name change, party enrollment change or correction to your current registration) you can register to vote/update your voter information online at the NYS DMV or obtain a Voter Registration Form from your local library, post office, town clerk, at the Board of Elections or download the form online:

Make sure you print legibly and include your answer to the following questions or else your application will be rejected:

  • Are you a citizen of the U.S.?
  • Birth date
  • The address where you live (the physical address where you live must be included – if you only include your mailing address your application will be rejected)
  • Sign the form in ink (applications that are not signed or that are signed in pencil will be rejected)

Mail or bring your completed voter registration form to:

Suffolk County Board of Elections
Yaphank Avenue
P.O. Box 700
Yaphank, NY 11980

Call the Suffolk County Board of Elections if you have any questions: (631) 852-4500

We also encourage you to make sure your family, friends and neighbors are registered!
