A suggestion from Pamela Keen:
It is completely legal in NY State to choose where you wish to vote as long as you don’t vote twice (in different locations), which is voter fraud.
2nd homeowners, and even those that rent for the summer months, with evidence such as utility bills, may choose to vote in CD-1. Here are some useful on line resources:
1. a court case upholding voting rights for part-time residents in Southampton
2. a useful website explaining your rights
3. you can register on-line
4. you can also download the registration form on-line and then send it in by mail.
This is particularly useful if you want to help someone fill out the form.
Get some forms and have them handy. Bring them to events and share them with your friends. For example, hand out registration forms at your 4th of July barbecue party!
It is a good idea to start now.
