Party Enrollment Change

February 14, 2021 is the cutoff date to receive a party enrollment change, in order for it to take effect before the primary election.

February 15, 2021 thru June 30, 2021 all party enrollment changes received during this time will be held.

June 30, 2021 - All party enrollment changes received from February 15, 2021 thru today will be entered and take effect right away.

Party enrollment changes received by the Board of Elections office after June 30, 2021 will take effect immediately.

In NYS you can only vote in a primary election if you are a registered voter in the party holding a primary in your voting district.

If you submit a party enrollment change thru the NYS DMV website or submit a voter registration form by mail, there is no guarantee it will reach us before the deadline if it is done after February 11, 2021.

How do I Change my Party Enrollment?

If you are a registered voter you will need to complete a voter registration form and select the party that you wish to enroll in or select No Party if you do not wish to be enrolled in any party. Mail the completed voter registration form to your local Board of Elections. Voter registration forms are available on our webpage under Forms.
