Fill out all the information such as your name, the party position and your place of residence. When you get to the Board of Election, ask the person at the counter for a Identification Number and write it there.

Make sure that all the information match exactly the information on the petition, including the address (even if the address is incorrect.)

The Board of Elections employees will not answer any questions. Many candidates are surprised by the unhelpfulness of the employees but they are not allowed to help. It’s a liability issue. The candidate is responsible to know what is needed and hand them all the documents correctly.

The board of election office will be open from 9 to 5 every day except the last day where they will stay open until 11:59 pm

Follow these instructions on the getting to the board of election.
