The Board of Elections is a New York State mandated agency funded by Nassau County administered by a bipartisan representation of the two major parties in the state; the Republican and Democratic Parties.
The principal functions of the board are to register voters, conduct Primary, General and Special Elections, canvass the results and certify the winners.
In addition to conducting elections, not including villages, schools, fire department and other special elections that are administered locally, the board’s basic functions are to maintain registration records for those county residents who file a registration form either by mail or in person. We provide registration forms to schools, universities, post offices, libraries, Department of Motor Vehicles, and designated government agencies throughout the county.
To keep our records as up to date as possible we use resident information from various sources including the Department of Health; official notifications from other Boards of Elections in the state, and throughout the country; and the National Change of Address listing.
From these lists we transfer voters to new addresses, cancel those who have moved out of the county, and every August send registered voters a notice of registration to verify their residence and voting status.
For further information,you may contact us at our offices in Mineola either in-person, by phone, or by fax.
