New York City pulled some shady stuff during the 2015 primary with voter purges and party reassigning. Even though the city claims a "permanent registration", to be safe if you have not voted in the past year we recommend registering again.
New York State has a closed primary, which means you cannot vote for whoever you want during a primary election, make sure you are registered into the political party that your candidate is running in to ensure you can vote for them.
Yes, that information is correct? You're done.
No, it's wrong? Go Here.
The following parties are recognized in New York State:
Again, New York State has a closed primary voting system. It is basically voter suppression from the two major parties, the Democrats and the Republicans. Let's take 2015 as an example: if you were not a registered Democratic Party member you could not vote for Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton. Many "No Party" (aka Independents) were left out from voting--the shitty part is they pay into the same election financing as everyone else but they cannot vote. Yeah, we are going to work to change this.
**The Independence Party does not mean you are an Independent Voter. It means you are in the Independence Party. You will have to choose "No Party" for that. However, if you do this you cannot vote in a primary election for any candidates.
Finding your polling location shouldn't be so hard, but it is. They change it from time to time and sometimes a day before the polls open.
