Voters urged to watch for important dates in upcoming election

Posted 4 October 2021 at 9:30 am


Busy County Neighbors, an October reminder: Be ready to participate fully in our democratic process.

These are some dates to keep in mind:

Oct. 8 is the last day to register in person at the Orleans County Election Office (14016 Route 31 West, Suite 140, Albion, NY 14411) or to postmark a mail-in registration to vote in the upcoming General Election.  This is also the time you should think about being registered within whichever party you choose to be affiliated for June primary voting.  Be ready to let your voice be heard through the June primary ballot boxes.

With a single Voter Registration Form (available at the County Election Office, or printable at (click here), whether already registered to vote or not, you can take care of any name or address changes  as well as ensure you are registered in a way that allows your voice to be heard through the June primary ballot boxes. 

In Orleans County, Oct. 23 – Oct. 31, we have the privilege of going to the Orleans County Election Office to cast our ballots for the “November 2” General Election, or we can go to our designated balloting site on November 2.  There is plenty more information about all of this and options such as absentee voting at:  (click here) and at (click here).

This above listed NY Political Calendar also provides dates such as the season for running for office.  Now is the time to start talking with your town and county political party leaders if you are interested in running for office in November 2022!!  The process of registering for placement on the June 2022 primary ballot will need to be complete in early February 2022.  
Of note in the upcoming General Election, there are Statewide Ballot Proposals, details available here
