Submit Party Enrollment Changes by Feb 12th

Last Updated: 2/2/2021

In accordance with NYS Election Law, if you wish to change your party enrollment in time for the 2021 Primary Elections, the Board of Elections must receive your registration form by February 14th. Any enrollment change request received after February 14th will not take effect until June 29th, 2021 (even if they were postmarked on or before Feb. 14th). Since February 14th is on a Sunday this year and we will not be open on the weekend, the Board of Elections must receive your enrollment change by Friday, February 12th or earlier to ensure that it takes effect.

Remember that in New York State, if you wish to vote in a Primary Election, you must be an enrolled member of the political party for which the Primary is being held. There are currently four constituted parties in New York State:

Democratic (DEM)
Republican (REP)
Conservative (CON)
Working Families (WOR)

You can change your party enrollment by submitting to us a voter registration form in person or by mail at:

Tioga County Board of Elections
1062 State Route 38
P.O. Box 306
Owego, NY 13827

You can also change your enrollment at the DMV in person (56 Main St, Owego, NY 13827), or online at if you have a NYS DMV-issued Driver's License, Permit, or non-driver ID. *Note that any party enrollment change filed with the DMV from February 12th to 14th this year will not be received by the Board of Elections in time to take effect before the Primaries. Enrollment changes filed with the DMV must be done on February 11th or earlier to be timely.

If you have any questions, please call us at (607) 687-8261.
