Election day is fast approaching, which means if you are not yet registered to vote, time is ticking away for your chance to exercise the privilege we have.

In order to obtain a voter registration form, you must contact the Erie County Clerk's Office at 716-858-8785 or by e-mail at ErieCountyClerkOffice@erie.gov, or go directly to their website at www.erieboe.com and click on the "Register to Vote Now" link.

Forms are also available at any DMV office or at Erie County Hall (92 Franklin Street in downtown Buffalo).

Your vote can make a difference!
