This Just In

There is good news for anyone who may have missed the deadline on Friday for changing party registration or enrolling in a party after being registered NOP (no official party). 
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that he has signed Executive Order 202.94 extending the enrollment period for voters to make changes to their party enrollment until Tuesday, February 16, setting forth a uniform statewide policy that ensures voters can take advantage of this option regardless that the deadline this year falls on a Sunday. This change is necessary to ensure that Boards of Election have adequate time to process these voter-requested changes considering many Boards are short-staffed and operating with reduced density due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. The change will go into effect immediately. 
The entire announcement can be read here.   

Of course, tomorrow being Presidents Day, you have only Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to go to the Board of Elections at 401 State Street to change your party enrollment. If you want to vote in the primary election, which takes place on June 22, you must be enrolled in a party.
