On Sept. 24, Americans will celebrate National Voter Registration Day with a 50-state effort to register voters before Election Day on Nov. 5.
The registration process can be completed using a paper application or online. One form of ID is needed: the voter’s driver’s license number or the last four digits of their Social Security number.
Staff at Macedon Public Library, 30 W. Main St., will help those wanting to register from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. For the general election, voters must be ages 18 or older and meet certain deadlines.
Paper applications mailed to the Wayne County Board of Elections must be postmarked by Oct. 11 and received by Oct. 16. Online applications will be filed within days of receipt and a notification will be sent to confirm registration.
The library will have absentee ballot applications available for eligible voters that will be out of the area on Nov. 5. These applications must be postmarked by Oct. 29. Voters must be registered to request an absentee ballot.
The library will offer two opportunities for Macedon voters to meet their local candidates. Republican candidates will stop by the library at 7 p.m. on Sept. 24, followed by Democratic candidates at 6 p.m. on Sept. 25. Another meet-and-greet is scheduled for October.
