Not a registered #Dem in #NY and want to #vote for #BernieSanders? You have 2 days to register! | Blog#42

I received a panic email from a Times reader about voting for Bernie Sanders in the primary. The email reads as follows:


So, I asked around and, indeed, there is a concern among grassroots groups that information is deliberately not being disseminated.

So, if you reside anywhere in New York State and never registered as a Democrat but want to vote for Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary, then you must register as a Democrat before the October 9 deadline.

The IfYouWantBernie website has the necessary information on how to register if you are not already registered as a Democrat. As of this writing, on 10/5/2015, you have 3 2 days left to register.

If you are interested in helping the grassroots effort to elect Bernie Sanders, here are some resources in New York state:

If you would like to volunteer by calling voters in NY to inform them about the deadline, and what they need to do, contact Team Bernie NY

  1. Thanks for this, and for giving your readers the tools to actually do something about this travesty! As we speak, I am phone banking trying to share this with unaffiliated voters, Greens and Independent Party members. With only 12,000 calls under their belt, NY for Bernie has a long way to go to reach their goal of 40,000.
