What if I moved from another county in NYS and I haven’t registered yet in my new county?

In 2019, a law was passed that requires all Board of Elections in New York State to transfer the voter registration of any voter that appears on a statewide voter list, to wherever the voter moves within NYS. So if you move, even to a different county in NYS, and your new county has not been notified of your change of address, you can vote by affidavit ballot either at your new county’s Early Voting site before Election Day, or at the polling site for your new address on Election Day, and your affidavit ballot will be counted once your new address is verified and your registration has been transferred. As this is a new law, we strongly recommend that if you have moved within NYS, you submit a voter registration form to the new Board of Elections, or if you have a NYS driver’s license you can go to MyDMV to change your voter registration online. If you submit your change of address to your local Department of Motor Vehicles office, you can select the option to notify the Board of Elections of your address change on the paper form also.
