Voter Pre-Registration

VCSD believes that getting young people involved in the election process helps to secure the future of democracy by preparing young people to be educated, engaged voters who have formed the habit of voting and contributing to civic life early. 

As a reminder, through New York State law § 5-507, students who are 16 or 17 years old have the opportunity to pre-register to vote, provided they meet all other requirements to register to vote. These pre-registrations will be automatically registered upon reaching the age of eligibility following verification of the person’s qualifications and address.

Pre-voter registration packets are available in the guidance office and are also available on the New York State Board of Elections website.
