New York State voter registration breaks records

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New Yorkers have again set a record for online voter registration ahead of this year’s presidential election.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration on Monday said 214,356 people filed online voter registration applications between October 1 and Friday, the deadline. That’s far more than the previous one-month record of 140,602, which was set last month.

The single-day registration record was also set on Friday, when nearly 68,000 people signed up to vote.

Of those who registered online this month, more than 122,000 are first-time voters. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
