There's no reason Tupper Lakers aren't able to vote in the November election!
County election officials have made it easy with the announcement this week that there will be a voter registration drive this Saturday, October 6 from 10a.m. to 2p.m. at the Goff Nelson Memorial Library.
In addition to registering to vote, those who attend will also be able to pick up absentee ballot applications.
Here are some of this year's important voting deadlines:
Registration and party change deadline is Oct. 12. Address change deadline is October 17. The last day to postmark an absentee request is October 30. The last day to vote by absentee in person is November 5 but this must take place at the county board of elections office in Malone.
Any teenager 17 years of age can also participate in the election process. They may pre-register to vote and while they cannot vote until they are 18 years of age, they can work as a poll inspector- duties for which they will be paid.
Election commissioner Tracy Sparks and Tupper Lake Republican Chairman Ray Bigrow were instrumental in setting up Saturday's event.
