How do I check my current registration status?
Don't know where you're registered to vote? Or if you're registered at all? You can use NYSVoter to check your registration status if you are a NYS Resident. Or you can use usa.gov to find the local election office site in your home state.
It is best to check your registration as soon as possible in order to ensure you can vote on Election Day.

Do I register to vote in Corning or in my hometown?
The place where you vote will be determined by the most recent voter registration form filed with the board of elections. You have a right to vote either at home or in Corning (only one location). You will need to decide the most appropriate place. Voting at home may be your preference if you and/or your family have an interest in voting for candidates that represent your home town.
What if I have more questions?
