About Voter Registration Drives

Many groups conduct voter registration drives locally, including political parties and single-issue groups who are interested in gathering support for a particular candidate or position. If you have any questions about a particular voter registration event, you should contact the local Board of Elections and determine whether it is aware of the registration activity.

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan organization, also conducts voter registration activities at a variety of community locations and functions throughout our coverage area. We conduct these voter registration drives with the knowledge and assistance of the local Boards of Election and always promptly return all completed registration materials to the appropriate Board of Election.
