Voting is by far the most important way to make your voice heard in American government. Women in America did not gain the right to vote until 1920, after nearly 70 years of tireless struggle by countless suffrage activists. By exercising your right to vote, you honor the generations of women’s rights activists in this country and take an active role in choosing our next generation of national leaders.

Registering to vote is a simple process; just print out the New York State Board of Elections Voter Registration Form and mail it to your county board of elections (address included on the form).
