Be registered to vote by Tuesday

October 5, 2007

Albany --  Time is running out if you haven't registered to vote and want to cast a ballot next month.

The last day to register to vote on November 6th is Tuesday.  It's also the last day to change your address with the elections office if you've recently moved.  Yellow signs will be posted at the polling places November 6th reminding voters you also need a photo ID to cast a ballot.

"The law has changed now and you must have a photo ID," said Elections Supervisor Carolyn Hatcher. "Of course that can be your drivers license, that's the number one item people do use, but it must be there's one of six things that has your picture on it."

Wednesday is the first day you can cast an absentee ballot.  Advanced voting will be the week of October 29th.  Advance voting this year has moved to the Riverfront Resource Center in the Candy room.
