Election Day is four weeks away – Tuesday November 4th – and several public figures want to ensure everyone is aware.

New York State Board of Elections requires voter registration be postmarked 25 days before the election – Friday October 10th – and received no less than 20 days before the election – Wednesday October 15th.

Check out this video circulating around the web about why it’s so important for voters to “turn out” this election year:
