ALBANY, NY – Governor Andrew Cuomo says that with less than one month before the New York State presidential primary, there have been more than 40,000 voter applications on the DMV’s website, including 20,889 from first-time voters.
 
“Our online voter registration portal is key in this administration’s efforts to knock down barriers to democracy and encourage more participation in the electoral process,” Governor Cuomo said. “I encourage anyone who needs to register, or update their information, to join the growing number of New Yorkers using this simple and convenient tool to ensure their eligibility to vote in the upcoming presidential primaries.”
 
New York State Department of Motor Vehicles Executive Deputy Commissioner Terri Egan said, “Business is definitely picking up on the MyDMV voter registration website and we couldn’t be more pleased with these results. Casting a ballot to vote on the future of our country is one of the most fundamentally important things we can do as Americans. There’s still time left to register and I encourage anyone who has yet to do so to visit the MyDMV website today.”
 
Eligible New Yorkers have until this Friday, March 25, to register.
