Today is the last day to register for next month’s primaries


Voters will have to apply for registration by today, Aug. 16, to vote in primary elections this year.

The state’s primary is slated for Tuesday, Sept. 10.

BallotWhile no state-level offices are up for election this year, major local positions across the state are up for grabs, including the mayor’s office in Rochester, New York City and Binghamton.

“As we approach another election season, I encourage New Yorkers to make sure they are registered to vote to cast their ballot in September,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement earlier this month.

The general election will be held on Nov. 5.

In order to vote in a primary, voters must be enrolled in a political party. New York does not have open primaries; only those registered with a party are allowed to vote in that organization’s primary.

For absentee voters, the last day to apply for a primary ballot in person is Sept. 9, while applications by mail have to be postmarked by Sept. 3. The actual absentee ballot must be sent in by Sept. 9, or delivered in person to the county board of elections Sept. 10.

To apply to register to vote, visit the state Department of Motor Vehicles website, or contact your county board of elections.

    . . . ( HERE) is My Take on this one . . . The commonsense development of “the News about unsettled issue of “Carlos Dangering”! By the way Miranda said ” Viva”!

    What I don’t understand is when ” Carlos Danger ” legally” or ” undocumented( Well! Please Pardon me! I am not even sure, if “undocumentedly” is even a Word in English Language or not!) Please Hold! Let me PRESS 2 for English!

    ( Laughter)
    LOL! Hey! Don’t blame me! I read everything in the Newspapers , I am not making this up! When ” truth made by recent America” is discussing and I write about it! Why point fingers at me. . .Its all there research and read!

    And, Seriously! When entering the Back Door can be ” Constitutional ” and made a US LAW!. . The Why is ” Registration ” Deadlines?

    . . . when, they have ” Orgies Parties” travelling to Boston every Friday ( with the wives ) and there is no Registration! Why Register the Voters?

    The only Problem is that bothers me is Why am not invited in those Orgies! I am not saying don’t have them but what about me?

    And, I think all Men agree with me on this one! Just kidding!

    What does this comment proves! ( although I am just kidding to make a point) And i.e. its ok to do what is a general practice ” everything” is and around sex. But, its such a big deal to write or talk about it! Why?

    Hypocrisy! Right.

    But! Honestly, it doesn’t works that way!
