Voter Registration Information
The National Voter Registration Act of 1993, also known as the "Motor Voter Act," makes it easier for all Americans to exercise their fundamental right to vote. One of the basic purposes of the Act is to increase the historically low registration rates of minorities and persons with disabilities that have resulted from discrimination. The "Motor Voter Act" requires all offices of State-funded programs that are primarily engaged in providing services to persons with disabilities to provide all program applicants with voter registration forms, to assist them in completing the forms, and to transmit completed forms to the appropriate State official.
The Center for Students with Disabilities is a New York State Agency-Based Voter Registration Site, where students with disabilities are offered information, voter registration application forms and the opportunity to register to vote. We will be glad to help you fill out the form or provide assistance registering through CUNYFirst. There is no obligation to register to vote and the student's decision will have no effect on services offered by the Center for Students with Disabilities.
Voter registration information, voting sites, and application forms are available on the CUNY Votes homepage. Please refer to the following website: https://www.cuny.edu/register-to-vote/
Voter registration information and application forms are also available at the website for the Board of Elections of the State of New York: https://www.elections.ny.gov/VotingRegister.html
