Who Should Register?

Anyone who is a parent, caretaker, teacher, neighbor, community member, or child advocate should actively and regularly exercise their right to vote. When constituents voice their concerns and priorities, elected officials listen! In short, you should register to vote if you care about children and youth and:

  • Have never registered to vote,
  • Have moved since the last election, or
  • Have not voted in the past five years

16 and 17 year olds can now pre-register to vote in New York!
