Democratic Committee

Why register with a political party?

In New York, only registered Democrats can participate in the process of getting candidates on the ballot on the Democratic line:

  • Only registered Democrats can circulate or sign nominating petitions.
  • Only registered Democrats can vote in a primary election.

You are not obligated to vote for that party's candidate in the general election -- but you will likely want to, if you have participated in choosing the candidate!
