On Tuesday, Sept. 20, NYSUT joined the National AFL-CIO, American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and National Education Association (NEA) in support of National Voter Registration Day.
But we're not stopping there.
As we approach Election Day, be on the lookout for information and resources on our social media channels and the Member Action Center (MAC) about the need for all NYSUT members to be registered to vote.
There is so much at stake in the upcoming election — including funding for public schools, colleges and hospitals; safe schools for all; repealing receivership; tier equity; and much more.
But before we can vote, we must be sure everyone in our union is registered, so spread the word with your colleagues, friends and family!
Here are some resources to help.
Not sure that you're registered?
Visit voterlookup.elections.ny.gov to confirm your voter status online.
If you haven't yet registered...

Register in person: Print, fill out and sign the official NYS voter registration form and deliver it to your county Board of Elections or any state agency participating in the National Voter Registration Act no later than Oct. 14, 2022.
Next steps: Get ready to vote!
Once you're registered, you will be able to cast your vote in the general election by mail by voting early in your community (Oct. 29 through Nov. 6) or on Election Day at your local polls.
