New York State Board of Elections

Following a new court order, the party enrollment deadline for the August primary is Thursday, August 11. Voters wishing to change their party or enroll in a party for the first time must do so by Thursday, August 11 the latest. Any enrollment change request received on or after August 12 will not be effective until seven days after the August primary.

Voters can change their party enrollment online with a valid DMV issued ID or license at https://dmv.ny.gov/ or by completing a paper registration form and returning it to their County Board of Elections. Any change of party enrollment done via the DMV site requires an extra day to allow for transmission, therefore it must be completed by Wednesday, August 10 in order to be effective for the August primary.
