If you wish to mail in your voter registration form, it must be postmarked by August 21st, and the board of elections must receive your voter registration form no later than August 26th in order for you to vote in the primary election. If you wish to turn in your voter registration form personally, you must deliver it to the board of elections no later than August 21st in order to be eligible to vote in the primary election. There are similar deadlines for the general election; you must have your voter registration form postmarked by October 9th, and delivered via mail by October 14th, or personally delivered to the board of elections no later than October 9th. One exception is if you have become a naturalized citizen or you have been honorably discharged from the military after October 9th; in this situation, you can register in person at the board of elections until October 23rd.
