A New Way to Vote in Rockland County
There's a new way to vote in Rockland County, NY. The primaries in September were our first introduction to the new system. Personally, I preferred the old method but then, it takes time to acclimate to change. The plan is to implement this new system state-wide. The advantage is that the count is immediate, but I found the new method less private and not very "green" (all that paper wasted!). But again, it takes time to acclimate to change.
If you didn't vote in the primaries, check out this video for a preview of the new system.
By the way, if you've moved recently, you may need to re-register. You can register in person at the board of elections until October 22. If you plan on voting by mail make sure it's postmarked by midnight, October 8, so that it can be received no later than October 13. The deadline for Change of Address notices is also October 13.
For Registration forms call 1-800-FOR-VOTE.
