New York State’s presidential primary will be held on April 19th, and time is running out to register for it.

New Yorkers looking to vote need to be registered by March 25th in order to participate.

Voters need to be at least 18 years old, and need to have lived at their current address for at least 30 days before the primary.

Voters can register by contacting their local board of elections, or online at the state DMV website.

New York is not a winner-take-all state, meaning multiple candidates within a party can pick up a number of delegates.

The state has the second highest total number of Democratic delegates at stake (291), and the fourth-highest total of Republican delegates (95).

If you’re already registered in a party and looking to change that party, the deadline to do so was in October 2015.

However, newly registered voters or voters registering in a new county can still pick their party affiliation.
