Your vote counts! Register by October 12!

Elections are Tuesday, November 6. Check your voter registration status at:  This is important, especially if you are voting absentee or have recently moved. U.S.  Congressional, NY State, Gubernatorial, and many other critical offices are at stake.  

Do I register to vote in Geneseo, 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 Geneseo (only one location). You will need to decide the most appropriate place. Voting in Geneseo is convenient because of our on campus polling site in the Kuhl Gymnasium, and you will not need to file an absentee ballot form. 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.

Absentee Voting

“Voters in New York must have an accepted reason to vote absentee, including the inability to vote in person due to physical disability or absence from the county in which one is registered (if a resident of New York City, then absence from the city), among others.”
